Warrant issued for Detroit man accused of public indecency

A nationwide warrant has been issued for a Detroit man charged with public indecency and other sex-related charges.

Caleb Duane Garrison, 19, failed to appear for arraignment Thursday in the courtroom of Wood County Common Pleas Judge Joel Kuhlman.

Defense attorney Sara Roller said attempts to contact Garrison by phone were unsuccessful. Several notices had been mailed to his address in Detroit, she said.

Wood County Chief Assistant Prosecutor Pamela Gross requested, and Kuhlman granted, a nationwide warrant.

Garrison was indicted in December for unlawful sexual conduct with a minor, a fourth-degree felony; two counts sexual imposition, both third-degree misdemeanors; and public indecency, a first-degree misdemeanor.

On Aug. 1, he was accused of exposing himself with the purpose of personal arousal or gratification or to lure a minor into sexual activity. The alleged circumstances were his conduct was likely to be viewed by another, who was a minor.

On Aug. 1, he allegedly recklessly engaged in sexual conduct with another person who was 13 at the time.

He also on Aug. 1 allegedly had sexual contact with two different 11-year-olds knowing that conduct was offensive.
