Resident accused of sexually assaulting teenage relative

Police arrested a resident after learning he allegedly had been sexually assaulting a teenage relative for three weeks.
David H. Hallman, 54, was arrested Feb. 7 for criminal sexual conduct in the second degree against a 15-year-old girl. The girl apparently had been a victim for three weeks before telling her mother Feb. 2, who immediately contacted police.
“Some people don’t tell for years,” Lt. Scott Sarvello said.
Second-degree criminal sexual conduct is sexual contact based on the victim’s age and other factors.
“This is not a penetration case,” Sarvello said.
Magistrate Donald Chisholm arraigned Hallman for two counts of criminal sexual conduct in the second degree Feb. 7, with each felony carrying up to 15 years in prison. His bond was set at $50,000 cash, with no 10 percent, and he was kept at Oakland County Jail.
Following a Feb. 12 pre-exam conference with 52-4 District Court Judge Kirsten Nielsen-Hartig in Troy, Hallman’s case was bound over to Judge Martha Anderson in Oakland County Circuit Court in Pontiac, although a hearing date has not yet been set.
Defense attorney Nicki Weisberger was not immediately available for comment.
During the investigation, the victim was interviewed at CARE House of Oakland County by a forensic interviewer who specializes in these types of cases, Sarvello said.
Hallman was also located, interviewed and made admissions to the allegations, Sarvello said. He was arrested while the case was prepared and sent to the Oakland County Prosecutor’s Office for review.
