NORTON SHORES, Mich. (AP) — An ex-high school music paraprofessional in western Michigan has been ordered to stand trial on accusations he had sexual contact with a student, and he also faces new charges involving two other boys.
Muskegon County District Judge Michael Nolan ruled Wednesday there's enough evidence for 54-year-old Michael D'Oyly to stand trial on a charge of fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct. The case involves a then-16-year-old student at Mona Shores High School in the Muskegon suburb of Norton Shores.
Authorities also filed second- and fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct charges involving two other male students.
D'Oyly was suspended as a choir accompanist Dec. 31.
Defense lawyer Fillipe Iorio unsuccessfully sought to have the judge reduce D'Oyly's $750,000 bond. He remains jailed and returns to court Feb. 8.
