FLINT, MI (WNEM) -

A Flint man has been arrested with 11 felony charges relating to sexual assault.

The arrest came after the Sexual Assault Rape Kit Initiative was awarded to Flint.

Joseph Starr, 35, was charged for three different cases involving three victims, Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton said.

The oldest case occurred between 2011 and 2013 in the city of Burton. Star is charged with one count of criminal sexual conduct in the first degree for sexually assaulting someone under the age of 13 in that case.

The second case happened in June of 2015 with someone unable to give consent due to age, Leyton said.

Starr is charged with two counts of criminal sexual conduct in the second degree for that case.

The third case happened in Flint in August 2015.

Starr is charged with one count of criminal sexual conduct in the first degree, unlawful imprisonment, two counts of assault with a dangerous weapon, and four counts of felony firearm in the case, Leyton said.

The charges could put Starr in prison for life.

“This may be a perfect example to show that, while time may go by, and even years may elapse, we never cease to seek justice and hold accountable those who would commit horrible crimes against others,” Leyton said.
