Court appoints lawyer for ex-officer

The Ohio Supreme Court on Thursday appointed the Ohio Public Defender’s Office to represent former Ottawa Hills Police Officer Thomas White in Lucas County’s appeal of the Ohio 6th District Court of Appeals’ reversal of his conviction.

Mr. White, 30, was convicted of felonious assault with a gun specification for shooting motorcyclist Michael McCloskey in 2009 after a traffic stop. Then, on Jan. 11, the appeals court cited problems with jury instructions in his trial, ordered a new trial, and threw out the gun specification. Prosecutors appealed to the Ohio Supreme Court, which agreed in May to accept the case for review.
