Clinton Township — A 71-year-old Trenton man has been charged with trying to have sex with a child.
Duane Carl Winquist was arraigned Monday in 41-B District Court on four felony charges: child sexually abusive act and child sexually abusive activity, which each carry up to 20 years in prison, and two counts of computers-Internet-communicating with another to commit a crime, punishable by 15 years to life.
According to the Macomb County Sheriff’s Office, Winquist “was attempting to make contact with a juvenile subject for the purpose of engaging in sexual activity.” Sheriff Anthony Wickersham said Winquist went to a “prearranged meeting location,” where he was arrested.
Wickersham said search warrants were executed at Winquist’s Trenton home and Riverview business.
Bond was set at $200,000.
