LAURELVILLE, Ohio (AP) - The former police chief of a southeastern Ohio village has been sentenced to a year of probation after admitting he misused an official law enforcement computer.

Forty-five-year-old James E. Taylor was sentenced Thursday in Hocking County, after pleading guilty to a felony count of unauthorized use of property.

The Columbus Dispatch (https://bit.ly/1wdlXKs ) reports that Taylor was originally charged with 12 counts of unauthorized use of property and one count of grand theft of a motor vehicle. The other charges were dismissed as part of a plea agreement.

Another former acting chief in the village, 42-year-old Frank Diamond, has pleaded not guilty to one count of receiving stolen property and two counts of complicity to grand theft of a motor vehicle. His trial is next month.
