A 35 year-old Ohio man pleaded no contest this week, to sexually assaulting a woman at the Alpena Combat Readiness Training Center.

Scott Clay Wagner will be sentenced in November on a single count of criminal sexual conduct 4th degree.

A Michigan State Police investigation revealed that Wagner placed his hand on the thigh of a woman at the base’s River Club on July 18 or 19, 2018. He was told to leave the woman alone but persisted and at one point placed his hand on her inner thigh.

Another woman witnessed the assault. Wright and the women are from the same town in Ohio. They were at the base for training.

In exchange for the no contest plea, a second count of CSC 4th degree was dismissed.

Wagner was allegedly intoxicated at the time of the assault and claims to have no recollection of the incident.

The River Club is a bar and restaurant located on the base.
