An affidavit of complaint was filed against Red Boiling Springs Mayor Kenneth Hollis on Tuesday, February 23, 2010, accusing the politician and business owner of sexual battery and sexual battery by an authority figure.

The recent affidavit, accusing Hollis of sexual battery, reads as follows:

“When I was 17 years old, on November 30, 2008, my boyfriend (name omitted) and I rented an apartment from Kenneth Hollis in Red Boiling Springs, Macon County, Tennessee, for my boyfriend, me and my baby to live in. My name, and my boyfriend’s name, were on the lease, but I did not sign it because I was only 17. A few days later, during the day, while my boyfriend was at work, Kenneth Hollis came into my apartment and put both of his hands on my chest and groped my breasts and said, ‘Oh, they’re so big, let me see them, you know you want me to play with ‘em.’
