LA CROSSE, Wis. (WEAU) -- A police chief in the La Crosse area has pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor charge.

Special Prosecutor Kevin Croninger said Town of Campbell Police Chief Tim Kelemen, 37, entered the plea to a charge of Unlawful Use of a Computerized Communication System on Friday. The court ordered a two-year diversion agreement. That means Kelemen was not found guilty, but must do community service, comply with a mental health treatment, and follow other conditions. The case will be dismissed if he meets the conditions. If he breaks any laws or doesn't meet the conditions during the two-year period, he would be found guilty and proceed to sentencing.

Investigators say Kelemen registered La Crosse Tea Party leader Greg Luce for gay dating, pornography, and federal health care websites. Kelemen told investigators that he did it because he felt Luce urged his supporters to harass Town of Campbell officers.
