The Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office has charged a Michigan Department of Correction probation officer with eight counts of criminal sexual conduct.
Mark Vernon Titus, 46 of Grosse Pointe, was arraigned Thursday on four counts of second-degree criminal sexual conduct and four counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct in the 2008 assault of a 35-year-old Detroit woman who was on probation. The assaults allegedly took place between April and August 2008.
Titus, who was with the department for 11 years, is on unpaid suspension. He’ll be back in Detroit’s 36th District court Oct. 26.
