MENOMINEE, MI--   A former Menominee County Sheriff’s deputy who pleaded guilty to sexual misconduct with a teenager faces more charges in another case involving a minor.

Brian Helfert, 57, was arraigned Friday on 11 charges, including child sexually abusive activity; four counts of 1st-degree criminal sexual conduct; three counts of 3rd-degree CSC; assault with intent to commit penetration; gross indecency between males; and being a sexually delinquent person.

MENOMINEE, MI--   Three Menominee businesses were served with “cease and desist” letters for staying open during Governor Whitmer’s “Stay Home, Stay Safe” order.
