The Atlantic County Prosecutors Office says that a 32 year-old woman has signed a complaint against 62 year-old James McElwee, saying that on Tuesday he touched her inappropriately.
Due to McElwee's position, Galloway Township will not be handling the case, instead another municipal court will determine probable cause and decide if a summons will be issued.
McElwee, a democrat is running for re-election to one of four seats on the council in November's election.
