Girlfriend insists man is innocent

The girlfriend of a Spokane Valley man accused of trying to lure teenage girls while masturbating in his car says he’s wrongly accused. “I know 100 percent for a fact he didn’t do those things,” Marina Corbin told The Spokesman-Review. “I’m with him every day.” Michael J. McBride, 28, pleaded not guilty Tuesday to two counts of indecent exposure and one count of luring. He was arrested Oct. 6 after police said two of three alleged victims identified him from a photo montage. Corbin said McBride plans to take the case to trial and will obtain phone records and witness statements to prove his innocence. A police news release said McBride was spotted in the area of a reported luring incident and couldn’t name the student he said he’d dropped off; Corbin said she knows the man McBride was with and said he’s willing to talk to police. Police said a third victim accurately described his white Subaru, but Corbin said McBride’s Subaru is gray. McBride remains in Spokane County Jail on $50,000 bond.
