  • A North Dakota prosecutor has cleared the former Lincoln police chief of child abuse accusations.
    Chief Marcel Sim was placed on administrative leave in September after his wife filed a restraining order against him that accused him of domestic violence.
    He resigned but withdrew the resignation and the City Council fired him in October.
    The Bismarck Tribune reports that McLean County State's Attorney Ladd Erickson reviewed the case and found no evidence of criminal conduct, so no criminal charges will be filed.
    The Burleigh County state's attorney had Erickson handle the case to avoid a conflict.
    Sim says he's not surprised he was cleared because he "knew there was nothing there." He says he doesn't know whether it's possible to get his job back.
