LUDINGTON – A 38-year-old Fountain man faces two felonies in connection to the alleged sexual assault of a 10-year-old girl, according to Mason County Undersheriff Derrek Wilson.

Shirey, of 201 Fourth St., was arrested by the Mason County Sheriff’s Office, Feb. 21, and charged with second-degree criminal sexual conduct (CSC) and accosting a child for immoral purposes. He has been arraigned in Mason County’s 79th District Court, and a preliminary exam is set for March 13 at 11:15 a.m.
