According to Kent County Jail records, Gary Rolls bonded out of the Kent County Jail on Saturday. Rolls faces charges that include criminal sexual conduct, evidence tampering and using a computer to commit a crime. He was arrested Thursday morning when he left the commission chambers towards the end of a meeting.

Allegations first surfaced in late October of 2012 when the woman, then in her late 20′s, tried to get a protection order against Rolls.

Then in late 2012 and early 2013, Rolls was in court fighting that protection order from his alleged victim, who claimed that he had been sexually assaulting her and controlling her since she was around 9 years old until she was 23.

Court documents indicate that many of the official charges stem from when she was between 12 and 16 years old.

Rolls is scheduled back in court for a hearing on December, 4.
