WAPAKONETA (AP) -- A former Ohio police chief who was convicted of downloading photographs of nude children on his computer at work is fighting a requirement that he register as a sex offender now that he's out of prison.
David Harrison was police chief of Wapakoneta in northwest Ohio from 1988 to 2002. The 55-year-old served two years of a six-year sentence and was released Monday.
Harrison's attorney on Friday filed a motion with the Ohio Supreme Court to stop Auglaize County from ordering Harrison to register.
The county sheriff's office sent Harrison a letter on Wednesday threatening to seek an indictment if he did not schedule an appointment to register as a tier II sex offender.
Harrison's appeal of his conviction is scheduled to be heard by the state Supreme Court in May.
