News


GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WZZM) -- Kent County Prosecutor William Forsyth announced he will not seek reelection in the coming year.

Forsyth, who has served Kent County for the past 30 years, said it is time to step aside, according to a news release. He spent an additional 12 years as a prosecutor prior to the county position.

"Although witnessing the acts of inhumanity that we as a society inflict on one another can take its toll, the opportunity to have been an advocate for the victims of crime has been incredibly rewarding," Forsyth said in the news release. "Nothing will ever match or replace the joy, the pride and the heartache I experienced as a prosecutor."
