LANSING, Mich. (WXYZ) — A Macomb County man already serving jail time for sexually abusing young girls at his home has been sentenced to 18-36 years in prison for sexual abuse of the same girls at his cabin in northern Michigan.

Michael Wolka, 54, pleaded no contest in June to to first degree criminal sexual conduct and three counts of child seuxally abusive activity.

The Michigan Attorney General's Office said in the summer of 2016, Wolka took three young girls to his cabin in Glennie, Mich., in Alcona County. The next year, one of the girls came forward and said he tried to sexually assault her after drugging her and the other two girls before bed.

The tip was referred to the AG's office and a search warrant was executed on the cabin. During the search, they seized several SD cards, which found Wolka had been videotaping the girls in the bathroom. It also showed him sexually assaulting a young girl several times.

According to the AG's office, Wolka is currently serving a sentence for crimes he committed against the same girls at his home in Macomb County.

“This sentencing reinforces that when it comes to the safety and welfare of our children and residents, my office will do everything in our power to hold dangerous individuals accountable,” Nessel said in a release. “I appreciate the Court’s decision and commitment to ensuring justice in this case was served.”
