GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) -- WZZM 13 is investigating allegations of sexual assaults against a teenager by a Kent County politician.
Documents were released Tuesday by the Kent County Democratic Party naming a local Republican.
Because of the political season, we want to be transparent about our actions in this case. We have tried to contact the accused politician and others involved in the investigation.
At this time -- as the politician has not been charged with a crime -- we feel it inappropriate to name the person because of the nature of the allegations and the approaching election.
WZZM 13 News will continue to investigate this story. We will report more when we feel it is appropriate.
