Who is Michael Raymond-Ulrich Simmons ?
A Michigan father is alleged to have turned his son over to police after discovering the 30-year-old had been sending nude photos of himself to a minor.
Michael Raymond-Ulrich Simmons, of Cadillac, was arrested Wednesday following a Michigan State Police investigation after they received a tip from his father two years ago, WJHG reported.
Police officials said the father first contacted them in October 2020, when he told state troopers his son may have sent inappropriate photos of himself to a minor.
Simmons faces up to nine years in prison and a $4,000 fine if he is convicted. It’s unclear who the images were intended for, what they depicted, and how Simmons’ father found them. The age of consent in Michigan is 16.
The department’s Computer Crimes Unit conducted lengthy interviews and searches to analyze Simmons’ web activity, leading Missaukee County prosecutors to authorize an arrest warrant for him on February 24.
Simmons surrendered to police custody a week later and was booked into the Missaukee County Jail before being released on a personal recognizance bond.
