[MI] 6 YEARS LATER (?) demoted Lt. Dakin pleads no contest to cop on cop sex assault

Suspended Newaygo deputy pleads no contest to assaulting officer
January 26, 2009
NEWAYGO COUNTY -- A suspended Newaygo County sheriff's deputy, accused of sexually assaulting an acquaintance, pleaded no contest Monday to a physical assault charge and will be sentenced in about a month. Robert Dakin, 39, a former lieutenant and department spokesman, was charged with third-degree criminal sexual conduct through force or coercion. The original charge, a 15-year felony, alleged he touched a 33-year-old reserve police officer from another agency against her will in August 2002. Dakin's no-contest plea, which is treated the same as a guilty plea for sentencing purposes, was to assault with intent to commit great bodily harm, a 10-year felony. Prosecutors could not be reached for comment.
