DELAWARE, Ohio (AP) — A former State Highway Patrol lieutenant has been sentenced to 30 days in jail and three years of probation on a theft conviction for stealing a gun seized in another Ohio investigation.
WCMH-TV reports that a Delaware County judge last week also sentenced 48-year-old William Elschlager, of Marietta, to perform 200 hours of community service and to pay a $1,000 fine.
Elschlager’s attorney, Sam Shamansky, said Monday that the judge was impartial and the sentence was appropriate.
Elschlager was previously a Marietta post commander in southern Ohio’s Washington County. He is separately accused of stalking a subordinate’s wife after she ended their affair.
