LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Attorneys for the state are asking the Wyoming Supreme Court to uphold the convictions of a former prosecuting attorney found guilty of misusing county money.

State attorneys filed their legal arguments in the appeal by Richard Bohling, the former Albany County prosecuting attorney.

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 camera gear because photos taken by police often were insufficient to secure convictions.
