(LANSING) – A second recall petition against Branch County Prosecutor Ralph Kimble will be heard next week.

The State Board of Canvassers will meet Tuesday at 10 AM and hold a hearing on a recall petition submitted by Alexia and Stephen Rish. The Board will review and then vote on if the petition states factually and clearly each reason for the recall of Kimble.

According to the petition submitted by the Rish's, they say Kimble should be recalled for several reasons. One is that the local Branch County judges requested an official investigation of Kimble by the Michigan State Police and the Michigan Attorney General concerning alleged improprieties.

Another reason for the recall is that Kimble has been named as a defendant in an ongoing lawsuit alleging sexual harassment in the Branch County Courthouse by a former employee of the Prosecutor's Office.

On January 30, the Board of Canvassers voted 4-0 to turn down a petition submitted by the Rish's, determining that the language in the first petition failed to state in a clear and factual manner the reason for Kimble's recall.
