Cuyahoga County issues indictments on corruption related offenses

Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Timothy J. McGinty announced that a Cuyahoga County Grand Jury has issued the first indictment for corruption related offenses following the federal government investigation of Cuyahoga County Government.

Friday's three indictment accuses Bentleyville attorney Anthony O. Calabrese III, of one count of theft by deception and two counts of bribery. The charges relate to Calabrese's position as attorney for Alternatives Agency, a halfway house located in Cleveland. 

The first count accuses Calabrese of directing the agency to pay consulting fees to Anthony Sinagra and J. Kevin Kelley, and concealing the fact that neither individual produced any work product. 

The second and third counts accuse Calabrese of bribing former Cuyahoga County Commissioner Jimmy Dimora and former Cuyahoga County Auditor Frank Russo.

The indictment alleges that Calabrese directed J. Kevin Kelley to give plane tickets to Las Vegas and/or money to Dimora and Russo in exchange for Dimora and Russo helping to restore county funding to the agency.
