Deputy resigns following rape investigation

  • Text size: + -

NIAGARA COUNTY, N.Y. — A Niagara County Sheriff's Office deputy has resigned following a rape investigation.

The Niagara County Sheriff says Kevin Rohde resigned last week.

Rohde was arrested in September 2011 and charged with raping a Niagara County resident in 1999.

He was fired shortly after his arrest, but had the right to a hearing process, which was underway until his resignation.

The sheriff says he's taken an Alford plea in the case.
