The case of a Niagara County sheriff's deputy who has been charged with rape from an incident a doezn years ago continues to make waves, as a special prosecutor is being sought in the case.

The Buffalo News is reporting that a new prosecutor is necessary after longtime assistant D.A. Henry Schmidt was terminated just two days after Kevin Rohde was arrested by Lockport police for the 1999 incident.

Another assistant DA, Elizabeth Donatello, said Schmidt was consulted regarding Rohde's charges sometime between May and September.
