PORT HURON, MI – Detectives from the St. Clair County Sheriff’s Office are looking for other victims of a suspected child rapist.
James Carlton Reilly, who also goes by the nickname J.C. was arraigned in St. Clair County District Court, Marine City, on two counts of criminal sexual conduct first degree with a child under 13 years old and one count each of second degree criminal sexual conduct, kidnapping, child sexually abusive activity, using computers to commit a crime and distributing obscene material to children.
The 62 year old Reilly, of Columbus Township, is alleged to have sexually assaulted an 8 year old girl while she was at his home.
Reilly was previously convicted in 1989 of 1st degree criminal sexual conduct with a child under 13 years of age, following an investigation by the Michigan State Police Marshall Post. He was released from prison in 1999.
Before moving to Columbus Township, it is known that Reilly lived in the city of Warren. It is highly possible that Reilly’s sexually abusive activity occurred there as well.
