42-year old Robert Lintzenich, of Hartland, has been charged with five counts of criminal sexual conduct in the first degree.
Livingston County Undersheriff Michael Murphy says authorities have identified two victims, both close to the suspect.
Murphy says one of the victims stated this abuse had been going on for more than 10 years, and that the victims had reported abuse to child protective services in two other states, but no charges were filed.
Lintzenich is not known to have a previous criminal record.
Lintzenich was arraigned on Jan. 23. He is currently being held at Livingston County Jail on one million dollars bond.
If convicted, he faces life in prison.
