Tue, 22 Nov 2011 10:12:05 GMT — A Canadian man was in Alger County Circuit Court. Mohamed El Fectali was arraigned there Monday. El Fectali is accused of attempting to abduct a 12-year-old girl on November 9 while driving through the Munising area. The attorney for El Fectali, in a hearing in District court last week, said his client, who is a Moroccan-born Canadian citizen, was simply asking for directions. The police detective said El Fectali stated he spoke to the girl hoping it would result in a sexual encounter. El Fectali is due in court December 5 for an Alger County Circuit Court hearing.
