Former Ohio judge gets 5 years in corruption probe



Published: Tue, October 4, 2011 @ 3:50 p.m.

AKRON, Ohio (AP) — A former judge caught in a county corruption investigation in Ohio has been sentenced to five years and three months in prison.

Steven Terry, a former judge in Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court, was sentenced today in federal court here on his conviction for fixing a foreclosure case and doing campaign work with court employees on county time.

According to The Plain Dealer of Cleveland, Judge Sara Lioi said secretly taped conversations prove Terry was not truthful when he denied wrongdoing.

Terry resigned from the bench in Cleveland after a jury convicted him.

He was the second judge convicted in the three-year FBI investigation of county corruption in Cleveland. Former Judge Bridget McCafferty was sentenced to 14 months in prison for lying to the FBI.

How long has Terry been getting away with abuse of the public trust? After he's let out of prison (3 months on good behavior) will he get to keep his pension and retirement benefits?
The system has to be changed.
Vote Yes on issue 5
