NEW LONDON, N.H. (AP) - The former police chief in New London, New Hampshire, and a college student who accused him of asking her to pose for nude pictures have settled a lawsuit filed by the student.

Court documents say the town’s insurance provider is paying $70,000 to the woman on behalf of the town and Seastrand.

David Seastrand resigned as the New London police chief in April 2013, a month after Janelle Westfall, a Colby-Sawyer student, said Seastrand offered to drop an underage drinking charge if she posed for him.

The attorney general’s office said the allegations were disturbing, but didn’t rise to the level of criminal conduct.

The Valley News reports (https://bit.ly/1CdmqTd ) that the Seastrand did not admit any wrongdoing as part of the settlement.
