An 18-year-old man has been sentenced to a minimum of five years for sexually abusing a 12-year-old girl.
According to MLive, Taylor James Dusen of Ravenna, Michigan pled guilty to first-degree criminal sexual conduct in July, a charge that involves sexual penetration with a child under age 13.
The case came to authorities’ attention when the victim’s mother found her daughter’s diary outlining the sexual assault.
According to Muskegon County Chief Assistant Prosecutor Timothy Maat, the victim and Dusen met through a mutual friend in 2016. The sexual assaults occurred in March 2017 at the victim’s home, and there were reportedly more than one on the same day.
Following the diary discovery, the mother reported the incident to the Muskegon County Sheriff’s Department. Dusen was arrested on May 31.
Dusen does not have a prior criminal history. The judge sentenced him to a minimum of five years and a maximum of 35 years, as is within state

Taylor Swift emerged victorious from her legal battle with David Mueller, the radio DJ who groped Swift backstage at a meet-and-greet.
Mueller has since spoken out against the ruling, maintaining his own innocence. Now, in an interview with TMZ, Mueller is desperately seeking employment.
“I’ve been personally seeking employment since after the concert … Right now I don’t have any offers. A lot of my friends in radio know that I’d be willing to even work for free,” says Mueller, who admits he’d even screen phone calls, a job essentially for interns.
Mueller was fired from his job after accusations from Swift became public. He had attempted to sue Swift for damages, but a judge dismissed the suit.
Mueller is hoping to rebuild his reputation and return to morning radio, which he describes as his “passion.”

Following a guilty verdict, David Mueller maintains that he did not assault Taylor Swift.
According to E! News, the former DJ sat down with “Good Morning America“ to defend himself. He claims he never groped her and he’ll take a polygraph test to prove it.
“What I’m saying is that I didn’t do what they say I did. I didn’t do it. I never grabbed her. I never had my hand under her skirt and I can pass a polygraph,” he said.
Mueller says he touched the superstar’s ribs during a 2013 meet-and-greet in Colorado. “Because I was a larger person, I thought it would be a good idea if I closed my hand, so I didn’t poke Taylor with my fingers,” he testified.
She responded during her testimony by stating, “He did not touch my rib. He did not touch my arm. He did not touch my hand. He grabbed my bare ass.”

The trial of David Mueller, whom Taylor Swift is accusing of sexual harassment, continues today.
A report from Complex on the specific details of Swift’s testimony reveals more details about the meet-and-greet incident, which led to the trial.
“He did not touch my rib,” Swift said in court, according to TMZ, referring specifically to Mueller’s testimony, in which he denied any kind of sexual content. “He did not touch my hand. He grabbed my bare ass. He stayed latched on to my bare ass… as I moved away from him visibly uncomfortable.”
“It was a very shocking thing that I have never dealt with before,” she added. “He grabbed my ass underneath my skirt. It was underneath my skirt.”
TMZ has previously published photos of the incident in question, despite Swift’s request not to have the images disseminated.
The defense went on to argue that Mueller is innocent because Swift continued the meet-and-greet

Taylor Swift’s mom has testified in her groping trial and says the alleged incident traumatized her daughter.
“Mom, a guy just grabbed my ass,” Andrea Swift recounted her daughter telling her after the June 2, 2013 incident. According to People, Andrea Swift got emotional while testifying in the trial against former DJ David Mueller.
Andrea, who is a part of the superstar’s management team, wasn’t present but says that she saw the photo from the meet-and-greet that shows the alleged act. She says she knew something was wrong given her daughter’s body language. “I knew there was something horribly wrong in that picture,” she testified. “I know those eyes better than anybody. She was pulling away. She has that smile frozen on her face, but there’s something going on in her eyes. I just looked at it and I was sickened.”
The mom testified that the 27-year-old Swift was “really shaken, she was humiliated,

Jury selection has started in Taylor Swift’s case against a radio DJ.
The superstar alleges that David Mueller groped her during a meet-and-greet in Denver in 2013. According to People, the 27-year-old was on hand while potential jurors were interviewed and screened at the courthouse.
Based on the questionnaire handed out, potential jurors were asked questions, such as have you “listened to Taylor Swift on the radio,” “watched any Taylor Swift video,” “read a blog, magazine, or other news reporting about Taylor Swift,” “purchased a Taylor Swift album,” or “gone to a Taylor Swift concert or performance” in the last two years.
There are also questions about whether jurors were fans of Mueller on local country radio station KYGO.
In the case, Mueller first sued Swift two years after the alleged groping incident because he believes her claim cost him his job. The “Shake It Off” singer countersued, saying in court papers that

Taylor Swift is gearing up to face her alleged sexual harasser in court. As TMZ shares, the superstar alleges that a Denver DJ named David Mueller grabbed her butt during a photo opp.
Here’s what you need to know:
Jury selection will begin Monday for his lawsuit against her and her countersuit.
Teen Vogue explains that the incident in question revolves around Swift claiming that Mueller groped her at a pre-concert meet-and-greet in Denver in 2013. That moment appears to have been caught, at least partially, in a photograph.
Then 51, Mueller claims the allegations caused him to lose his job, and he’s suing for slander. She is countering and believes that this case will “serve as an example to other women who may resist publicly reliving similar outrageous and humiliating acts.”
“Right as the moment came for us to pose for the photo, he [Mueller] took his hand and put it up my

Normally, when I see an incredibly hot woman dance onstage I feel either bored or jealous, depending on her level of skill. With Teyana Taylor I just feel lucky to be watching. I will never get tired of Teyana Taylor owning everyone on the dance floor.
Taylor showed up at a Hot 97 concert on Saturday night and twerked for Usher. Obviously, she looks incredible, but it also seems like she’s chewing gum, which I find hilarious. She’s like, “Yeah, I am a queen and I don’t need to spit my gum out to concentrate on this.”
