CHEBOYGAN (WKZO) -- A man living in a Portage Foster Care home for adults with developmental disabilities and mental issues has been formally charged in Cheboygan with sexually molesting four young boys nearly 20 years ago.

51-year-old Leonard Richey was arrested by State Police this week and transported to the northern Michigan community where he is being held without bond.

The molestations allegedly occurred back in 1990-91.

One of the victims came forward with the accusations, claiming he had been having issues because of the assaults, back when he was just 10.

It’s not clear if the three other alleged victims have also come forward.

Two years later in Detroit in 1993, Richey was charged with a sex crime and did 6 years in prison.
