JohnBalyoGRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (June 24, 2014) – A former radio host who is now facing criminal sex charges has been removed as a volunteer with the Kent County Sheriff’s Department.

John Balyo had helped the traffic squad since 2004.

The group, which is a 501(c)(3), assisted with community parades and other events.

Balyo was arrested Friday in Gaylord at the Big Ticket Festival.

Monday, he was charged with two counts of criminal sexual conduct involving a child.

According to a police report, Balyo had sexual contact with a 12-year-old boy.

His former employer, Cornerstone University, fired him on Saturday from his position as morning show host with WCSG.

Balyo is expected to appear in court on June 30.
