Four Michigan men are facing felony charges for allegedly having sexual encounters with a thenyear-old Brighton-area boy they individually met on Grindr, a smartphone app geared toward gay men. The alleged encounters occurred in January and March and were reported by a family member of the nowyear-old complainant, who resides in the Brighton area. How the relative learned what happened was not disclosed. The men allegedly picked up the complainant and went to undisclosed locations to have sex. Swatling also faces two counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct, and one count each of using a computer to commit the crime and possession of child sexually abusive material.
