GRAND HAVEN, Mich. (WOOD) — A psychologist in Grand Haven has been charged with sex crimes for a second time.

Grand Haven police say William Kooistra, 58, from Grand Haven was arraigned Monday on a fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct charge by a mental health professional.

Police say the charge stems from an incident in May 2020.

Kooistra was sentenced earlier this year for attempted fourth-degree CSC and had his psychology license suspended. After the 2020 investigation, Kooistra’s medical license was also permanently suspended.

Police added that the new allegation happened before the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs suspension.
