Charlevoix County Prosecuting Attorney Allen Telgenhof tried the case for the State of Michigan.
A young child testified that Kreager engaged in three instances of sexual contact with the child in the summer of 2015.
“The victim was so brave to testify against the defendant and did the right thing in telling people what had happened to (the child),” said Telgenhof.
Criminal Sexual Conduct, Second Degree is a felony punishable by up to 15 years in prison.
Kreager will be sentenced on Friday Jan. 22, 2016, by Circuit Judge Roy C. Hayes III.
Kreager’s bond was revoked immediately after the verdict and he will be incarcerated pending sentencing.
He will be placed on the Michigan Sex Offender Registry for his lifetime and will have lifetime electronic monitoring as a result of the conviction after he is released from prison.
The case was investigated by the East Jordan Police Department with the assistance of the Charlevoix County Sheriff’s Department.
