Two Arrested in Delta County for Child Abuse, CSC, Torture
MARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – Two suspects remain lodged at the Delta County Jail following their arraignment today on Child Abuse, Criminal Sexual Conduct and Torture charges.
46-year-old Susan Bardo and 47-year-old Carl Pellinen were arraigned in the 94th District Court on one count each of Child Abuse, CSC and Torture following their arrest by Escanaba Public Safety late last week.
Officers were called out Friday afternoon to a residence on the 1500 block of North 20th Street to check on the welfare of a 15-year-old boy. Officers contacted Bardo, who is the boy’s mother, and Pellinen, who is her boyfriend, and asked about the welfare of the boy.
Officers found him to be staying in an upstairs room, approximately 8ft by 10ft, and lined with tarps. The boy was taken to Public Safety and was interviewed about his living conditions and then transferred to OSF St. Francis Hospital for medical evaluation.
Bardo and Pellinen were arrested on the charges and both are jailed on a $50,000 cash bond each.
