Nick DeMond Pleads No Contest In Sex Assault Case; Faces Up To 10 Years In Prison

      The owner of DeMond’s SuperValu has pled no contest to the charge of assault with intent to commit sexual penetration involving a person under 13 years old in his Monday motion hearing in Allegan County Circuit Court.
        Nick DeMond’s attorney James Mike McEwen of Otsego-based McEwen “indicated his client does not remember the incident due to alcohol consumption,” according to court records.
        The court reviewed police reports to establish the factual basis for the no contest plea.
        In a no contest plea, the defendant in a criminal case neither admits nor denies a charge, but it is treated as a guilty plea by the court.
        Assault with intent to commit sexual penetration is a first-degree criminal sexual conduct charge, and is a felony. DeMond could receive a prison sentence for up to 10 years.
        Besides that charge, DeMond, 45, also faces two additional counts of second-degree criminal sexual conduct involving a minor.
        The crimes occurred between 2007 and 2011, according to police records.
        Demond’s sentencing has been set for March 20 at 9 a.m. before Allegan County Circuit Court Judge Margaret Baker.
        He was arrested in July 2015 following a Michigan State Police investigation.
