Posted: Updated:
COLUMBIA CO. (WKOW) -- A Portage teen faces charges of sexually assaulting a mentally disabled woman.

18-year-old Michael Powell was charged with three counts of felony second-degree sexual assault Wednesday, and each charge carries a maximum of 25 years in prison.

The acts are considered assault because the victim suffers from a mental illness.

Powell will be back in court June 9.
