LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) - The state Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in the appeal of a former prosecuting attorney found guilty of misusing county money next week.

The Laramie Boomerang reports (https://bit.ly/2dccRd2 ) that oral arguments for the case of Richard Bohling are set to take place Oct. 20 at the University of Wyoming College of Law.

Bohling has asked the state Supreme Court to reverse his five criminal convictions stemming from what prosecutors say was Bohling’s use of county money to buy cameras and other items for personal use.

Bohling was sentenced to two to four years in prison in February. He was also fined $45,000 and ordered to pay $3,000 in restitution.

Bohling’s lawyers had argued he bought the expensive gear because photos taken by police often were insufficient to secure convictions.
