Rovenstine To Remain As Sheriff Until Plea Accepted

Rovenstine will remain sheriff until the judge accepts that plea deal, but prosecutors confirm that the conviction will remain a felony and he would be removed as sheriff. Kosciusko County Repulican Party leaders would then meet and select a new sheriff within 30 days.

The other two men accused in the conspiracy–former Grace College professor Mark Soto and former martial arts instructor Kevin Bronson–are due to go to trial in August, but the Times Union reports that plea deals may be coming soon for both of them as well.
