Commissioner accused of sexual assault
GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) -- The process to replace Gary Rolls on the Kent County Commission moved forward Thursday.
Five of the 13 candidates that applied for the job were interviewed by a committee Thursday evening. The candidates are interviewing for the seat that was held by Rolls for 10 years.
Rolls is now facing four first degree criminal sexual conduct charges. Investigators say he had a long-term sexual relationship with a woman who is now 28, but she was a child when it started.
The committee will meet again next Thursday to choose the candidate.
