(Eaton, OH)--Testimony continued at the Preble County Courthouse Wednesday in the case of former Ohio Highway Patrol Trooper Christopher Ward, who is accused of multiple sex crimes – some while on duty. In one case, a 15-year-old friend of Ward’s daughter, who was spending the night at his house in Eaton and sleeping in the same bed as his daughter, claims Ward came into the room and touched her inappropriately. Ward, in the initial investigation, claimed he was reaching for a cat. "I go to the head of the bed to grab it. And, in doing so, her friend that was staying all night, rolls over toward me," Ward claimed. The trial continues Thursday. Ward is expected to take the stand. He faces up to life in prison if found guilty.
