Costanzo scheduled to be in court again



Published: Thu, August 11, 2005 @ 12:00 a.m.



WARREN -- Trumbull County deputy sheriffs will bring suspended Warren attorney Maridee Costanzo back to Trumbull County Common Pleas Court on Monday to face weapons charges.

Visiting Judge Joseph Kainrad of Portage County has set a hearing for 10:30 a.m. for a possible plea.

Earlier this month Costanzo was sentenced by a federal judge to eight years in prison for trying to have her estranged husband, Warren attorney Roger Bauer, killed.

Costanzo, 47, has been in custody in an Akron-area jail since her arrest in April on the federal charge.

The Trumbull County charges stem from a March traffic stop, when Costanzo was a passenger in a car driven by William D. Cindea, 56, of Warren. Police found a loaded gun tucked in the front of Costanzo's pants, reports state.

She faces two counts of carrying concealed weapons, improperly handling firearms in a motor vehicle, two counts of tampering with evidence and two counts of obstructing justice. She has pleaded innocent.

Federal prosecutors said it is their understanding that any sentence on these charges would run concurrent with the time imposed by U.S. District Judge David D. Dowd Jr.

Cindea has pleaded guilty in federal court to being a felon in possession of a weapon. He will be sentenced in September.
