A male caregiver has been charged with raping a 70-year-old woman in Clarkston.
Michael S. Jackson, 49, has pleaded innocent to two counts of second-degree rape and indecent liberties. His next court date is Jan. 31.
The crimes allegedly occurred last November at the Clarkston Care Center. According to court documents, the woman told a caseworker she had consensual sex with Jackson while he was her caregiver. The caseworker reported the issue to law enforcement officers, who found the woman has mental issues that affect her decision-making skills.
Clarkston Care Center said Jackson is no longer an employee.
