SAGINAW COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

A former reserve Saginaw County Sheriff’s Office dive team member is accused of sexting with a teenage girl.

The 46-year-old Saginaw Township man is facing felony charges for sending naked pictures of himself to the Grand Blanc Township teen when she was 16-and-17-years-old.

Michael Garner was a family friend and allegedly committed the acts between June and September of this year.

Investigators seized his phone and an iPad as part of the investigation, and he had been suspended from the dive team. Garner has since been terminated.

A Grand Blanc Township mother told police she saw suspicious messages on her stepdaughter's Facebook account so she reported it to police.

The investigation revealed images and videos of Garner, who was known to the family, police said.

He has been charged with 10 counts of use of a computer to commit a crime, six counts of distributing explicit materials to a minor, one count of production of child sexually abusive materials and three counts of possession of child sexually abusive materials.
