Ex-Ohio officer imprisoned for sex with girl

NEWARK, Ohio (AP) — A former Ohio police officer who impregnated his live-in girlfriend's daughter three times is going to prison.

The Columbus Dispatch (http://bit.ly/RqLrok ) reports that 44-year-old George Gibson was sentenced to 4 ½ years in prison this week in Newark, east of Columbus.

Gibson, a former Hebron and Union Township police officer, was accused of beginning a sexual relationship with the girl when she was 8.

He caught the attention of authorities when they began work on a child-support case related to him and his victim, who was 26. They had three children together by then. The oldest was 10.

Gibson was convicted of four counts of sexual battery.

Ohio law makes it illegal for a parent, stepparent or guardian to have sex with his or her child, regardless of age.
