Eaton County sheriff wins re-election

CHARLOTTE, Mich (WLNS) – A bitterly contested race for Eaton County Sheriff has been decided.

And there will be no change in the top spot.

Sheriff Tom Reich won re-election by defeating challenger Fred McPhail by a 55 percent to 45 percent margin.

During the campaign Reich’s wife petitioned for a Personal Protection Order, which was denied.

McPhail’s teenage son is facing charges involving sex crimes with a minor.
