Supervisor Chris Dumler pleaded guilty to sexual battery this morning, Courteney Stuart writes for The Hook, with the 27-year-old Democratic official pleading to a 12-month sentence, suspended to 60 days, liable to only serve 30, just on the weekends. He was arrested on charges of forcible sodomy in October, and faced accusations from a second victim just last week, dating to 2006.
One has to imagine that this will be followed by Dumler’s resignation from the Board of Supervisors. It’s tough to see how somebody can plead guilty to a sex crime and remain in elected office. If he hasn’t already decided to step down, he’s bound to come under a great deal of pressure to do so, and soon.
