Hearing set Monday to dismiss all charges in Oakhill criminal conspiracy case


YOUNGSTOWN — A hearing in the Oakhill Renaissance Place criminal conspiracy case, in which special prosecutors are seeking to dismiss all charges against all defendants, will occur at 9 a.m. Monday before visiting Judge William H. Wolff Jr., a lawyer for one of the defendants said this morning.

J. Gerald Ingram, a lawyer for Atty. Martin Yavorcik, confirmed after a conference call this morning that Monday’s hearing will occur as scheduled in Mahoning County Common Pleas Court. Yavorcik is charged only with a single count of money laundering.

In the Oakhill case, five people, including two current and two former county officials, and three companies, including the Cafaro Co., are charged with conspiring to impede the move of the Mahoning County Department of Job and Family Services from Cafaro Co.-owned rented quarters on the city's East Side to the county-owned Oakhill building.
