“Allegations such as those contained in this indictment must be treated seriously and investigated thoroughly. This investigation and prosecution is a collaborative effort amongst several offices, and I want to thank the Auditor of State and officials in Mahoning County for their efforts," said Attorney General DeWine. 

“What our investigators found is deeply disturbing,” Auditor Dave Yost said. “Our team has worked this investigation for more than two years. They were tenacious and tireless in seeking justice, and there is more to come.”

“This was an extremely complicated investigation, one that required a great deal of patience, sophistication and teamwork,” Auditor Yost said. “The collaboration with the Attorney General’s office and Mahoning County officials was critical in reaching the point we are at today.”

This ongoing case is being investigated by the Ohio Auditor of State’s Public Integrity Assurance Team with the assistance of the Mahoning County Sheriff's Department. The Ohio Attorney General's Office is serving as special assistant prosecutor with Mahoning County in this case.


An indictment is an allegation. A defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
