A March 9 search warrant at Orr's Oxford home revealed "significant physical evidence consistent with the child victim's descriptions of the sexual assaults," according to the Michigan Attorney General's Office.

Warrants were issued May 7, and Orr was arrested at his home, police said.

MacMaster was arrested in Jacksonville, where he was working as an officer with the Duval County School Police Department, according to authorities. He was extradited to Michigan and arraigned June 18.

A bond hearing was held Aug. 30. Orr and MacMaster are being held in lieu of $250,000 bail. If released on bond, both must wear a GPS tether, Orr will be confined to his house and MacMaster must have a community member vouch for him and provide residence, officials said.

MacMaster must also give up his driver's license and passport, according to authorities.

A preliminary exam has been scheduled for Sept. 16 before Oakland County 52nd District Court Judge Nancy T. Carniak.
