Kansas City Mayor Ron Bates resigned Tuesday amid allegations that he sexually assaulted a woman in the 1980s.
The Kansas City Star reports Bates, 68, was found guilty of sexual battery by a grand jury in February.
He was also found guilty by a jury of obstructing a grand juror.
The case stemmed from a lawsuit by the woman, who alleged Bates sexually assaulted her in 1977 and sexually assaulted another woman in 1985.
Bates’ office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
