ANTIGO, Wis. (WSAU) -- There's a plea deal in the works for a former Langlade County deputy charged with sexual assault of a child.
Marathon County prosecutors say 26-year-old Michael Brayton is accused of having sexual contact with a 15-year-old girl. She also told police that Brayton sent her a number of nude photos of himself. During the investigation, it was found that Brayton has had relationships with four high school girls.
Brayton is currently facing 22 charges, including 2nd degree sexual assault of a child, child enticement, and exposing genitals to a child. Prosecutors say none of the crimes took place while he was on duty with the department.
He'll be in court for a plea hearing January 27.
Sheriff's officials say Brayton resigned from the department in June of 2012.
