Mateen Cleaves alleged sexual assault

He was investigated for his role in an alleged sexual assault in October 2015. He is accused of taking a 24-year-old girl to a motel in Mundy Township, on September 15, 2015, and keeping her against her will while sexually assaulting her. He was charged with unlawful imprisonment, assault with intent to commit criminal sexual penetration, 2nd-degree criminal sexual conduct and two counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct on March 16, 2016.

He was later released on a personal bond of $150,000. On March 29, he was originally scheduled to have a probable cause hearing and a preliminary examination on April 5, both before Judge M. Cathy Dowd. The case was delayed three weeks, as lawyers needed more time to review their evidence and was rescheduled to April 19.

The case will be handled by Wayne County. All charges against him were dismissed on December 5, 2016. Genesee Circuit Court Judge Archie L. Hayman ruled that District Court Judge M. Cathy Dowd abused her discretion on April 10, 2017, in finding no probable cause that Cleaves committed a crime, remanding the case to district court and ordering it bound over for a jury trial.

His attorney appealed the decision to the Michigan Court of Appeals arguing that Judge Hayman ignored the evidence of the case. It was announced that the Michigan Supreme Court declined to review a judge’s decision to reinstate sexual assault charges against him on January 4, 2018. The case is expected to return to county court for trial.
