First defendant charged in Boy Scouts investigation arraigned

The first person charged in the ongoing Boy Scouts of America investigation was arraigned Monday, Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel announced.

The defendant, Mark Chapman, was charged with eight counts of second-degree criminal sexual conduct and two counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct.

The charges stem from the alleged abuse of two victims.

Chapman was arraigned via Zoom from the Macomb County Jail. He was extradited to Michigan from New York.

No bond was given for the first-degree criminal sexual conduct charges.

A bond of $300,000 cash/surety was given for the second-degree criminal sexual conduct charges.

A probable cause conference is set for April 6.

These charges are part of a joint investigation into the Boy Scouts of America by Michigan State Police and the Michigan Department of Attorney General.
