RAVENNA

An Oct. 9 trial date is set in the misdemeanor criminal case brought by the Ohio Ethics Commission against former Newton Falls Mayor Pat Layshock.

The trial starts at 9 a.m. in Portage County Common Pleas Court’s Ravenna branch.

Layshock, 55, of Paige Court, Newton Falls, is charged with two ethics counts alleging he participated directly in meetings, discussions, deliberations and other actions from Jan. 22, 2009, to Feb. 23, 2009, “intended to benefit the business interests” of his brother, Kenneth Layshock, also of Newton Falls.

Kenneth and Pat Layshock are among the people on the witness list that Pat Layshock’s attorney, Michael D. Rossi, turned in to the court last week.

Visiting Judge Barbara R. Watson of Ravenna will preside over the case, which was transferred from Newton Falls Municipal Court.

Others on the witness list are dentist Charles Verbanic, Walt Good, Buzz Pishkur, Dennis Kutcha, Dave Hanson and Newton Falls Clerk Kathy King.

Good is a former vice president of the Youngstown/Warren Regional Chamber.

Pishkur is former executive officer and president of Forum Health.

Meetings Pat Layshock is accused of participating in related to water, sewer and road improvements needed to help attract a health-care center to Newton Falls in which Kenneth Layshock had a financial interest.

The facility didn’t materialize.
