HART — A 43-year-old Shelby man pleaded “no contest” to second-degree criminal sexual conduct (CSC) in 27th Circuit Court Monday, July 27.

In exchange for his plea, Daniel Brian Burns, of 2936 E. Baseline Rd., faces up to one year in jail for the sexual assault of a 12-year-old girl.

Sentencing guidelines in the case are 0-17 months, said Oceana County Prosecutor Joseph Bizon.

The case was set to go to trial in September, but an agreement was reached that spares the child from having go through trial.

Burns appeared in court via Zoom videoconferencing due to COVID-19 precautions.

Sentencing is set for Oct. 5 at 10 a.m.

Second-degree CSC is punishable by up 15 years in prison.
