FALMOUTH, Ky. (AP) - A former northern Kentucky police chief has been sentenced to three years of probation on charges of theft and abuse of a public trust.

The State Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1QFbQvH) Mark Lane Posey was sentenced Friday in Franklin Circuit Court after pleading guilty in October to charges brought against him earlier this year by Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway.

Conway’s office said Posey took over $10,000 in funds from a drug task force account.

Posey was police chief in Falmouth, about 40 miles south of Cincinnati, from March 2008 until he resigned in February.

As part of his plea agreement, Posey has agreed to pay back $16,700 in restitution and can no longer work in law enforcement.
