FLINT - A former special police deputy was sent to prison Monday for having sex with two teen sisters.

Genesee Circuit Judge Richard B. Yuille told Alan E. Trimue Jr. that his selfishness and immaturity had "left a trail of destruction" and had besmirched the reputation of other special deputies with the Genesee County Sheriff's Department.

Trimue, 29, of Flint was sentenced to six years, five months to 15 years in prison for third-degree criminal sexual conduct, two to five years for attempted kidnapping and two years for felony firearm.

Trimue pleaded no contest to the charges last month. The no contest plea is not an admission of guilt, but is treated as such at sentencing.














Former special deputy faces prison in sex assaults on teen sisters

GENESEE COUNTY, Michigan -- A former special deputy with the Genesee County Sheriff's Department faces prison after pleading to charges he had sex with two teen sisters.

Alan E. Trimue Jr., 29, of Flint, faces an April 21 sentencing after pleading no contest to two counts each of third-degree criminal sexual conduct and attempted kidnapping, and one count of felony firearms.

Trimue originally was ordered to stand trial on seven counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct, and two counts each of kidnapping, impersonating a peace officer to commit a crime and felony firearms use.

Prosecutors dismissed some charges and amended others to reach a plea deal with Trimue.

Attorney Frank J. Manley, who represents Trimue, said he pleaded no contest because of potential civil liability.

A no contest plea is not an admission of guilt but is treated as that at sentencing.

Manley said Trimue committed "a crime of immaturity, not malice."

Genesee Circuit Judge Richard B. Yuille said Trimue used a "false persona" of being involved in law enforcement to trick the girls, then 13 and 14, and their mother.

At an earlier hearing, the girls testified their mother asked Trimue, a family friend, to straighten them out for unruly behavior.

The girls said they and their mother believed Trimue was a deputy with the Genesee County Sheriff's Department because he had a badge, gun and uniform.

They said Trimue told their mother he was taking them to jail, juvenile detention or boot camp, but instead took them to area motels. One girl said she was there for several days and had sex with Trimue as he placed his gun on a night stand, pointed at her.

Neither girl is being named by The Journal, but the 13-year-old said Trimue was usually dressed in a deputy's outfit, complete with gun and badge, when he took her to the motels.

She said Trimue would leave her in the room alone for periods and order her not to call her mother.

She said she would watch television until he returned.

Both girls said Trimue told them to keep the motel visits quiet and not tell their mother. The older girl said she once told her mother what was happening, but Trimue denied it when asked by the girls mother.

The incidents occurred between December 2006 and June 2007, officials said.

The liaisons came to light after the older girl ran away from home and the younger girl told their mother they'd been having sex with Trimue, officials said.

Special deputies help with crowd control at community events and sometimes provide security at local churches or the jail, but have no police authority, Genesee Sheriff Robert J. Pickell said earlier.

Trimue, a special deputy since 2005, was released from the program by Pickell.

His attorney, Frank J. Manley, said Trimue isn't a sexual predator, but rather a man with diminished mental capacity who made bad judgments.

"It doesn't excuse what happened," said Manley, adding that Trimue is sorry.

David Mayes, an assistant Genesee County prosecutor, said Trimue's actions violated the public trust.

Trimue was arrested last June on charges that he took two sisters, then 13 and 14, to area motels for sex during a seven-month period that began in December 2006.

Their mother apparently had asked Trimue to talk to the girls about their unruly behavior, and thought he was a deputy because he had a badge, uniform and gun.

Trimue, however, had no real police authority and instead was a two-year member of the county's special deputy program used for duties like crowd control. He since has been released from the program.

Yuille told Trimue that he had broken trust of the girls' mother and that the harm caused the girls may not be known for years to come.

Trimue, as well as a family member of the victims, declined to make a statement before the sentencing.

Under terms of the sentence, Trimue will have to register as a sex offender.












Former special deputy to stand trial in sex assaults of sisters

FLINT -- The mother of two unruly Flint girls, ages 13 and 14, thought she would have a sheriff's deputy talk to her daughters.

But instead of setting them on the right path, Alan E. Trimue Jr., a former special deputy with the Genesee County Sheriff's Department, took the teens to area motels where he allegedly raped them.

On Tuesday, a judge ordered Trimue, 29, of Flint, to stand trial on seven counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct and two counts each of kidnapping, impersonating a peace officer to commit a crime and felony firearms use.

Central District Judge Christopher R. Odette made the ruling at the conclusion of a preliminary examination for Trimue.

Odette dismissed four counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct and scheduled an Oct. 8 circuit court arraignment on the remaining 13 charges.

The girls testified and said Trimue, a family friend, told their mother he would take them to New Paths or juvenile facilities where they would be disciplined or talked to about their behavior problems.

Instead, on separate occasions, he took them individually to several motels for sex.

The Flint Journal is not identifying the girls. The 13-year-old said Trimue was usually dressed in a deputy's outfit, with gun and badge, when he took her to the motels.

"He would not let me talk to my mom on the phone," she said.

She said Trimue would place his gun on the night stand as he raped her.

The older girl, now 15, offered a similar version of the encounters.

The older girl said she told her mother once what was happening, but Trimue denied it when asked about it by the mother.

Both girls said Trimue told them to keep the motel visits quiet and not tell their mother.

The incidents occurred between December 2006 and June, officials said.

Both girls told attorney Frank J. Manley, who represents Trimue, that they angered their mother by skipping school, smoking pot, drinking and other bad behavior.

Special deputies help with crowd control at community events and sometimes provide security at local churches or the jail, but have no police authority, Genesee Sheriff Robert J. Pickell said earlier.

Trimue, a special deputy since 2005, was released from the program by Pickell.

Trimue is being held in the Genesee County Jail.



                     






Special deputy to face forensic testing over rape case

A man charged with raping two young girls while posing as a police officer will be examined for his competency to stand trial.

Central District Judge Christopher R. Odette this morning ordered a forensic evaluation for Alan E. Trimue Jr. after a lawyer for Trimue said he was placed on suicide watch in the jail and might not fully understand the charges he's facing.

Odette set a Sept. 4 review date for Trimue.

Trimue, 28, of Flint, was a special deputy with the Genesee County Sheriff's Department. He faces 17 counts, including 11 counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct.

He is charged with taking two girls, now 14 and 13, to a motel and having sex with them over a seven-month period. Police said he won the girls' trust by convincing them he was a cop.







Special deputies benefit community, despite charges against one, sheriff says

GENESEE COUNTY -- It "is despicable" that a Genesee County special deputy allegedly posed as a police officer so that he could rape two girls, but not reason enough to scrap the special deputy program, Sheriff Robert J. Pickell said Friday.

Pickell's comments came as he spoke of charges against Alan E. Trimue Jr., 28, of Flint, who was arraigned on 17 counts, including 11 of first-degree criminal sexual conduct and two each of kidnapping, posing as a police officer, and using a firearm in the commission of a felony.

"Overall, special deputies are good hard-working people who volunteer," Pickell said, noting that special deputies help with crowd control at the Crim road race and other community events.

Pickell said Trimue, one of his special deputies, duped a Flint woman and mother of two girls, ages 14 and 13, to believe he was a police officer.

Trimue is charged with taking the girls to Crank's Motel in Burton, E. Hemphill Road and S. Dort Highway, where he allegedly had sex with them beginning in December of 2006 and continuing through June 30.

"The mom told us that Trimue had told her that he was a police officer," Pickell said. "...She trusted him."

The sheriff said that Trimue, as a special deputy, had "held a position of trust."

"This infuriates me," Pickell said.

Special deputies are not certified police officers and have no real police authority. Some who are issued special deputy badges are used as process servers, but the issuance of the badges is generally viewed as a perk county sheriffs in Michigan can hand out to curry political favor.

Pickell defended his special deputy program as one in which about 90 volunteers help out with basic crowd control at community events, and that other special deputies perform "security and ministry" functions at local churches and the county jail.

He said special deputies have done good work in the community for years and that the actions of "a sleaze" wouldn't cause him to end the programs. He said people who volunteer to be special deputies undergo background checks.

Trimue's alleged crimes came to the attention of the sheriff's department when they were called by state Child Protective Services workers on June 20, Pickell said. The 14-year-old victim had run away from home and the 13-year-old told their mother they'd been having sex with Trimue, the sheriff said.

When Trimue allegedly would take the girls to Crank's Motel to have sex with them, Pickell said, he would place a 9-mm. semi-automatic pistol on the table or nightstand, underscoring that his power over them.

He described Trimue, a special deputy since 2005, as a friend of the girls' mother.

Pickell said that the girls' apparently believed they had a serious romantic relationship with Trimue and wrote him letters. Those were taken as evidence by Sgt. Angela Latesky, the investigator in charge of the case.

Latesky swore out a warrant against Trimue late Thursday and told Central District Judge Richard L. Hughes that the special deputy used that ruse to get the girls from their mother.

Latesky told Hughes that Trimue allegedly had sex with the girls 11 times over the period as he held them captive for three days at the Burton motel.

The mother allegedly told officials Trimue had a badge, police identification and a gun, and was wearing a police uniform.

Hughes set a $690,000 cash bond. Trimue has a pretrial scheduled for June 29 before Central District Judge Christopher R. Odette and a tentative preliminary examination on July 3.

Trimue asked for a court-appointed attorney, and was ordered by Hughes to have no contact with the victims or their family, and banned him from any contact with anyone under age 18.

In May 2006, John J.A. Debono, of Swartz Creek, a former special deputy for the Genesee County Sheriff's Department, was sentenced to two years probation and 60 days on a tether for using his cell phone camera to capture a sexual episode between his friend's wife and a 13-year-old girl.

Genesee County Sheriff's Department Alan Eugene Trimue

A volunteer special deputy with the Genesee County Sheriff's Department held two young girls captive in a Burton hotel room for three days while sexually assaulting them, authorities said.

Alan E. Trimue, 28, of Flint, was arraigned today on 17 counts stemming from a series of acts that occurred over a seven-month period. He is being held on $690,000 cash bond.

Police allege that Trimue used his authority as a special deputy to get the two sisters, ages 13 and 14, away from their mother.

Genesee County Sheriff Robert J. Pickell said Trimue, a special deputy since 2005, told the girls' mother he was a police officer and took the girls to Crank's Motel on S. Dort Highway.

The allegation came to light when the older sister ran away from home and the younger girl told her mother that they had been having sex with the special deputy, Pickell said.

Pickell called Trimue's alleged conduct "despicable."

Trimue is charged with 11 counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct and two counts each of kidnapping, impersonating a peace officer while committing a crime and felony firearm possession.

In swearing out the arrest warrant Thursday evening, sheriff's Sgt. Angela Latesky told Central District Judge Richard L. Hughes the events occurred between Dec. 1, 2006 and this week.

Trimue represented himself as a police officer, producing a handgun, a badge and an ID card and wearing a uniform, the detective said.

He held the two girls captive in a hotel room for three days where he sexually assaulted them, Latesky said.










Volunteer Deputy Faces Charges Of Criminal Sexual Conduct

BURTON, Mich (TV5) -- A 29-year-old man has been arraigned on charges he assaulted two teenage sisters for months! Police say Alan Trimue seduced the 13 and 14 year old girls, took them to a Burton motel and threatened them if they ever told.Sheriff Robert Pickell says Trimue was a family friend of the girls.

The Sheriff says Trimue actually won the affection of the girls and that they sent letters to Trimue outlining their feelings for him.

Even so, Trimue allegedly told the girls he would send them off to boot camp if they told anyone about the trips to the motel. He allegedly kept a nine millimeter handgun on a nightstand in the motel room as an intimidation factor when he had sex with the teens.

Sheriff says Trimue started having sex with the 14-year-old last December, taking her to a motel in Burton. Eventually, he moved on to the girl's 13-year-old sister. The 14-year old was upset at being rejected, and Sheriff Pickell says she ran away from home. That's apparently how the case broke earlier this week.

The suspect was a Genesee County Sheriff's Department special deputy, a volunteer, and as a result the Sheriff made sure that he did everything in his power to throw the book at the suspect."I'm angry... very angry," said the Sheriff.

Sheriff Pickell says he's angry that the man used his position as a voluntary special deputy to gain the trust of the girl's mother, then had sex with the girls.

Special deputies help out with events like the Crim Road Race. As a result, the Sheriff is looking very closely at just who to accept into the Special Deputy Program.

Trimue faces 11 counts of criminal sexual conduct in the first degree, two counts of kidnapping, two counts of impersonating a police officer and two felony firearm counts. Sheriff Pickell personally talked with the district attorney about those charges.
