Jeremy Alley, 35, is seeking to have his 2003 conviction on five counts for soliciting sex from a teenage girl online erased from public view. Alley was caught in a sting operation in which a Cincinnati police officer posed as a 15-year-old girl.
His attorney argued his case at a hearing before Hamilton County Common Pleas Court Judge Norbert Nadel, who said he would issue a ruling at a future date, The Cincinnati Enquirer reported.
Prosecutors oppose having the conviction expunged because Alley was a law enforcement officer at the time and believed his victim was a minor.
Alley has completed his five years of probation but must still report his residence to authorities.
Elmwood Place is a village of about 2,200 people that is nearly surrounded by Cincinnati.
