Local News

EATON, Ohio (WDTN) – Sentencing has been delayed in the case of a former Ohio State Trooper convicted of sex crimes.

The Ohio Attorney General’s Office confirms that Chris Ward will now be sentenced on April 3 at 10 a.m. after a continuance was granted by the judge.

Additionally, Ward’s attorneys filed for a psych evaluation that may determine the likelihood that he would be a repeat sex offender.

In December, a judge found Ward guilty of three counts of gross sexual imposition and one count of sexual battery.
