Muskegon judge nominee charged with domestic violence

MUSKEGON, Mich. (WOOD) – A nominee for the 14th Circuit Court of Muskegon County has been charged with domestic violence.

On Friday, the Muskegon County Attorney’s Office said it had been made aware of an alleged domestic violence incident involving Jason Kolkema.

According to Matt Roberts, Muskegon County’s senior trial attorney, witnesses said the alleged beatings occurred through the window of an apartment on W. Western Avenue near First Street where Kolkema lives. The witnesses called Muskegon Police, who responded to investigate.

At least two people filmed the incident. Prosecutors are looking for other witnesses or videos of the incident.

Kolkema has since been indicted on one charge of domestic violence.

“Domestic violence is an extremely serious matter, and our office is committed to ensuring justice is served,” said Muskegon County Attorney DJ Hilson in a press release.

Kolkema has turned himself in, Roberts said.

Court records show he posted $500 cash bail.

He is due to be charged at 11am on August 31

Kolkema won the primaries in August. The midterm election is on November 8th.

Anyone who has heard, seen, or has video evidence is asked to call Detective Alamillo at 724.6762 or the Muskegon County Attorney’s Office at 231.724.6435.
