LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) - A jury has convicted former Albany County Attorney Richard Bohling of five criminal charges stemming from allegations he used county funds to purchase personal electronics while serving as an elected official.

The Laramie Boomerang reports (http://bit.ly/1MQHiWN ) that the jury also acquitted Bohling of three other charges.

The verdict on Saturday came at the end of a two-week trial.

The jury convicted Bohling of four felony counts of obtaining property by false pretenses and one misdemeanor count of official misconduct.

Bohling was found not guilty of one felony count of wrongful taking or disposing of property, one felony count of submitting false vouchers and one misdemeanor count of wrongful appropriation of public funds.

The prosecution relied heavily on the testimony of state investigators and past and current county officials.
