AKRON, Ohio - The Summit County Prosecutor Sherri Walsh announced Wednesday that her office has filed a response to the Ohio Supreme Court concerning their case against former Akron Police Captain Douglas Prade .
“According to the Ninth District Court of Appeals, which overturned Judge Judy Hunter’s ruling exonerating Doug Prade, Prade is a convicted murderer,” said Prosecutor Walsh. “As such, he should be returned to prison to finish serving the remainder of his life sentence.”
