Judge must decide whether ex-chief is sex predator

MEDINA, Ohio (AP) - A judge in northeast Ohio must decide whether a former police chief will be labeled as a sexual predator and be required to report his residence to authorities.
On Friday, the judge in Medina County heard evidence against former Lafayette Township Police Chief Rick Schmidt.
Schmidt pleaded no contest in January to two on-duty sex crimes. The judge will sentence Schmidt on Wednesday and decide whether to label him a sexual predator.
Four women told the judge that Schmidt hit on them with lewd pickup lines while on duty.
