A Michigan man faces sexual misconduct charges after he reportedly provided alcohol to underage minors and participated in sexual acts with one of his daughter’s friends at a party at his house.

Geoffrey Boylan, a 39-year-old former high school football coach, and wife Duanne Denise Boylan, 37, were charged with providing alcohol to minors on Wednesday. Furthermore, Duanne is facing a charge of permitting underaged teens to drink alcohol at the party that took place on March 3rd — an incident that Geoffrey blamed his teen daughter after realizing the potential consequences.

“I did not (have a party),” Boylan told the Record-Eagle in March. “There was a party that my child had.”

Hannah Boylan, 18, is also facing charges for both crimes.

The Grand Traverse County Attorney’s Office reported that the man is not expected to face sexual misconduct charges for the purported incidents involving an unidentified 16-year-old girl, indicating that “there weren’t grounds for such a charge.”

Prosecutor Bob Cooney said that although there are no current sexual assault charges against the lewd father, he will have to live with the moral repercussions of his behavior.

“There’s a difference between something morally or ethically wrong and something that violates the law,” Cooney stated. “Given the age difference and the circumstances, I can’t condone what happened, but at the same time, it did not violate the law.”

After news of the incident spread, District Superintendent Stephen Prissel verified that Boylan would not be returning to his coaching position at the school.

“Needless to say, this volunteer coach will not be part of our district,” Prissel expressed in a statement to the board. “(He) has no business being around kids.”

The family was since released from custody on $2,500 bond.
