CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) — An Albemarle County supervisor who pleaded guilty to sexual battery has stepped down from three appointed boards and commissions.
But Christopher Dumler says he won't resign from the county Board of Supervisors.
Media outlets report that Dumler stepped down from the appointed positions on Wednesday. The move followed a closed-door session of the Board of Supervisors.
Dumler says he believes his fellow board members would have removed him from the appointed positions if he hadn't stepped down voluntarily.
He pleaded guilty to the misdemeanor charge in January and received a 30-day jail sentence.
Earlier this month, the Albemarle County Democratic Party removed Dumler from the county Democratic Executive Committee. Both the county party and the Charlottesville Democratic Executive Committee have called for Dumler to resign.
