UPDATED::Pastor Mitch Olson under investigation for alleged sex assault

UPDATE:: Prosecutor: Pastor's touching was not criminal
“The conduct of suspect Mitchell Olson directed towards 19 year old Victim was morally reprehensible. The Grace Ministry Center head pastor’s conduct appears to be highly questionably and not religious in nature. It also appears to have violated the standards of the church. However, based on the information and law cited above, this conduct despite being immoral is not illegal according to Michigan criminal law. For these reasons we are unable to prosecute this case,” said Senior Assistant Prosecutor Paul Soderberg in the case review released Wednesday morning.
The St. Clair County Prosecutor’s Office is reviewing allegations that local Pastor Mitch Olson sexually assaulted a former member of his church.

The St. Clair County Sheriff Department submitted the case against the pastor of Grace Ministry Center to the prosecutor Wednesday morning seeking a criminal sexual conduct charge. 

The investigation comes nearly 10 months after the alleged abuse occurred. The 20-year-old female victim from Marysville filed a police report in June. She was 19 years old at the time of the alleged criminal sexual conduct. The Times Herald does not publish names of sexual assault victims.
