A Warren man faces serious charges after being accused of sexually assaulting a 7-year-old girl, as reported by multiple local sources. James Dandre Hall, 33, was arraigned last Friday on two felony counts — first-degree and second-degree criminal sexual conduct with a victim under 13 years old.

Details from WWJ Newsradio indicate that the alleged assault occurred on June 16 in Hall's home, with the first-degree charge suggesting involvement of penetration, which could lead to a life sentence, and the second-degree charge involving sexual contact, which could result in up to 15 years imprisonment.

According to Macomb Daily, Hall's arraignment took place in the 37th District Court where Judge John Chmura set the bond at $100,000; the terms require cash or surety, if he is posted he has stringent restrictions not to have any contact with the victim or any minors.

Macomb County Prosecutor Peter Lucido stressed the gravity of the situation stating, "I take protecting children very seriously, my office will make this man accountable for his alleged actions," in a release that was shared by The Detroit News; Hall is due back in court for a probable cause hearing on July 2 at 8:45 a.m., which will further determine the course of this serious matter.
