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.
