Probation hearing for Sheriff Altiere's son reset to March

Published: Sat, February 18, 2012 @ 12:04 a.m.

Staff report


A visiting judge has reset a hearing for 1:30 p.m. March 16 for Thomas R. Altiere Jr., 32, of Royal Troon Drive Southeast on an allegation that he violated terms of his probation.

Altiere, son of Trumbull County Sheriff Thomas Altiere Sr., pleaded guilty in June to felony deception to obtain a dangerous drug.

Judge Andrew Logan of Trumbull County Common Pleas Court and the Trumbull County Adult Probation Department approved of Altiere participating in a program called Treatment in Lieu of Conviction.

The program allows a defendant to avoid conviction as long as he or she successfully completes treatment. If he follows his treatment, the case could be dismissed in about a year.

If a serious violation occurs, however, a different sanction can be imposed.

On Jan. 12, the probation department asked the court to schedule a probation-violation hearing, and Visiting Judge Richard D. Reinbold Jr. of Stark County was assigned to the case.

The hearing has been reset twice, having originally been set Feb. 6 and again Friday.

Probation officer Tracy Hunt said the nature of the alleged probation violation is not public record.

David Joyce, Geauga County prosecutor, who served as special prosecutor on the case, said Altiere’s offense was leaving his job as a security officer at St. Joseph Health Center and obtaining prescriptions and the drug Hydrocodone, a pain medication.

HAHA! This is very typical of the Altiere Family. Not all, but a few! While the Sheriff's kids run amuck, his opponent’s kids are hard working and educated. To me that says everything about how Phillips will run the Sheriff's Office. Discipline, Integrity, Honesty and Professionalism. It's very apparent! So who do you want representing the county? A man who cannot control his own kids time and time again (even as juveniles) or someone who has his priorities in line and practices what he preaches! True sign of excellence, LEAD BY EXAMPLE!

Unfortunately, a parent's child can stray away from the core values and principles from which they were raised - it happens every day. However, one has to question this parent's principles of honesty and integrity. His facebook page has been posting blatant false claims of various endorsemens that in fact were NEVER given. These include endorsements from the AFSCME Unions and others. And most recently, he claims to have received the endorsement of the AIRLINE PILOTS ASSOCIATION - another false claim. In fact, it took FOUR (4) separate posts to his facebook page by a very reputable, current DUES PAYING member of the union, before those claims were removed. Just Google JimPhillips4Sheriff and see why the time has come for Trumbull County to welcome a new Sheriff to town, one whose principles are based on HONESTY, INTEGRITY and PROFESSIONALISM.

Reset the hearing and hope the media forgets about it so that the judge can let him off with a slap on the wrist. Typical justice in the land that time forgot.

I figured out why you talk out of your rear end...... you're a truck driver. There isn't anyone in this country smarter than a truck driver according to truck drivers. Educate yourself before opening your trap! Carry on!

He violated terms of his probation, he should not receive any special treatment!

Finally Mrs. Looser speaks out again. If you haven’t noticed this forum is open for any topic of discussion as long as it not offensive or slanderous. You should know what slanderous means since you’ve used the term yourself. The Sheriff surrounds himself with ignorance unfortunately you’ve been right next to him the whole time, I hear a broom a coming, coming round the bend. I don’t believe in bashing family members during campaign issues. But it does go to the character of the Sheriff himself. And if I recall he “blamed” the Doctors for allowing his son to become addicted. Quick to point the finger but slow to accept responsibility.

"Dear" Rose,
How DARE you make a smart a$$ comment about truck drivers!!! If it wasn't for truck drivers you wouldn't have that couch that your fat a&$ probably sits on every day! If it wasn't for truck drivers your kids wouldn't have food to eat or clothes to wear!! And chances are you wouldn't even have a job, that is if you EVEN HAVE a job, if it weren't for truck drivers!! So next time you even think, oh wait, it's obvious by your comments YOU DON'T THINK, about bad mouthing truck drivers look around you douche!! You would have NOTHING without hardworking men, like my husband, who every single year combined spend countless hours away from their families, safely, SMARTLY & responsibly driving millions of miles to make sure that society has everything we need to function!! I CANNOT even believe that a person as clearly dim witted and as ignorant as you are is allowed to take up precious oxygen!! Grow up & get off the couch!! My husband & 1000's of other drivers like him are sooo much smarter than you could EVER hope to be!! It's bcuz of good guys like him behind the wheel of those trucks that idiots like you are still alive at the end of your commute!! STFU & do a little self examination, I guarantee you won't like what you find!! BTW FYI GOOD hard working honest truck drivers make ALOT of $$$ & my husbands one of them!!!!!!!!! So NOW, who's the smarter one?! YOU, judging by the intelligence level you displayed here, probably have to work 10 times harder to make 1/2 the $ he does!!!!!!!
