The department says it had initially begun investigating Michaels when its Sex Offender Registration Office received information about him contacting and following juveniles on various social media platforms.

Michaels was arrested on Nov. 2 and subsequently charged with two felony counts of failure to register as a sex offender.

He made his initial appearance in Laramie County Circuit Court the following afternoon, Nov. 3, during which his bond was set at $5,000 cash and his preliminary hearing was scheduled for Nov. 13 at 10:15 a.m.

As of Wednesday afternoon, his bond had not been posted.

The Sheriff's Office says it's still investigating Michaels and is asking anyone with further information to call Detective Delcamp at 307-633-4734.
