A man accused of allegedly grabbing multiple women on their buttocks on NMU’s campus and in the city of Marquette will appear in district court next week for a pre-sentence interview to meet with probation.

Caleb Scott Anderson, 19, of Marquette, was released from Marquette County Jail on March 25 on a personal recognizance bond of $5,000. Anderson was arrested on March 21 on a warrant for an additional count of fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct after he was arraigned the same day on six counts of fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct in the 96th District Court.

Anderson now faces seven counts of fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct. Six counts involved separate victims and incidents that allegedly took place in August 2018 and January, February and March in Marquette County, Judge Roger Kangas said at Anderson’s arraignment on March 21.

Each of the six counts is a high-court misdemeanor punishable by up to two years in jail, a fine of not more than $500, or both.

Anderson allegedly would “run up to unsuspecting women, grab them on their buttocks against their will and run away,” according to a March 15 press release from Marquette County Prosecuting Attorney Matthew Wiese.

Anderson’s pre-sentence interview is scheduled for 9:40 a.m. on June 11.
