MARYSVILLE — A Union County man, once respected as Ohio’s Fire Officer of the Year, was sentenced to four years in prison Friday on possession of child pornography charges in Delaware County.

Former Northern Union County Fire District Chief Todd R. German, 51, of Richwood, had previously pleaded guilty to one count of possession of child pornography.

An investigation was launched against German after he quit his job as a fire service instructor at the Delaware Career Center in March 2012.
