Stillwater's Deputy Mayor is now in charge after the resignation of Mayor Rick Nelson.
Frank Tatum will serve as acting mayor after Nelson was arrested Thursday on child pornography charges. Times-Union reports that Nelson faced three separate sex crime cases in the 70's and 80's, but was never convicted.
"This has been an incredibly difficult day for the village of Stillwater," Tatum said in a statement posted by the village last week. "The village and its residents are still our #1 priority."
Village council will hold an emergency meeting tomorrow to discuss the matter.
