LUDINGTON —A Lansing-area attorney who was offered a plea deal regarding the criminal sexual conduct (CSC) charges he is facing rejected the offer Tuesday, Oct. 6, in 51st Circuit Court, and the matter is now being set for trial.

David James Anderson, of 446 Everett Dr., Lansing, was arrested last May by the Hart post of the Michigan State Police (MSP) for two felony counts of second-degree CSC.

Mason County Prosecutor Paul Spaniola said the offer on the table was a no-contest plea to fourth-degree CSC.

Anderson is accused of being sexually involved with a minor under the age of 13. Spaniola said previously that the charges stem from two separate incidents that occurred last year at a hunting camp in Sherman Township, both involving the same alleged victim.
