Updated court proceedings for Chris Dumler

Updated court proceedings for Chris Dumler

An Albemarle judge has heard comments for and against Chris Dumler today from numerous Scottsville District residents, several incumbent supervisors from other districts, and from county officials.

Many of the people who came to Albemarle Circuit Court signed a recent petition aimed at having him removed from office following his January 31st guilty plea to misdemeanor sexual battery.

We learned those who favor booting him office had roughly 100 more valid petition signatures than they needed.

Ken Boyd, Duane Snow and former Supervisor and Delegate Peter Way told the judge why they want Dumler forced off the board.

When he got on the stand Dumler highlighted his town hall meetings and extra sessions of the Board of Supervisors.
