ARTIST, 48, ACCUSED OF ABUSING GIRL

A Springville man has been charged with sexually abusing a 10-year-old girl in her home last December.

Michael C. Flanigan, 48, of East Main Street, a self-employed artist and poet, is charged with two felony counts of sexual abuse and a misdemeanor count of endangering the welfare of a child, the Erie County Sheriff's Department said.

Flanigan, who has lived in the Buffalo area since 1965, was taken to the Erie County Holding Center on $500 bail.

In the late 1960s, Flanigan published four volumes of poetry and gained a following at poetry readings in Buffalo.
