SCRANTON -- A former police chief in Lackawanna County was sentenced Friday to six months unsupervised probation.

James Romano, the former police chief of Scott Township, agreed to a plea deal last fall on charges he hindered investigators in a sex abuse case.

His sentencing had been delayed until his attorneys determined his pension would not be affected.
