A former Grant County resident was arraigned on 11 sex crimes in Grant County Circuit Court Thursday.
Chancee Mitchell Ferguson, 28, was indicted by a grand jury Jan. 20 on two counts of first-degree sodomy, two counts of first-degree sexual abuse, three counts of second-degree sodomy, two counts of third-degree sodomy and two counts of third-degree sexual abuse. The indictment states the incidents occurred between 2004 and 2011 with a single victim, who was younger than 12 in 2004.
Grant County Circuit Court Judge William D. Cramer Jr. set security at $50,000 and ordered Ferguson not to leave the state and to have no contact with the alleged victim. A plea hearing is set for May 18.
