COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio judge will not expunge the criminal record of a former police chief who drew a large following on his department’s Facebook page for his humorous comments about criminals.

The request comes about a year after former Brimfield Police Chief David Oliver was convicted on four misdemeanor counts, including assault of a female police officer who accused him of sexual harassment.

WKYC-TV reports Oliver addressed the court in Columbus before Judge Laurie Pittman announced her decision, with Oliver saying he’s changed as a person and has been “humbled.”

Pittman denied Oliver’s request to expunge his criminal record, citing a “lack of ownership of what he’s done.”

Oliver resigned as police chief in 2015 before he was sentenced to two years’ probation and surrendered his certificate to be an officer.
