Trumbull Co. man asks for release from prison

Staff report


Thomas Altiere Jr., 33, the son of the Trumbull County sheriff, has asked a visiting judge to allow him to be released from the Ohio prison system.

Altiere’s attorney, Gary Rich, filed a motion Friday in Trumbull County Common Pleas Court asking for judicial release.

Judicial release would allow Altiere to leave prison after serving 30 days of the 17-month sentence he received from Judge Richard D. Reinbold Jr. on May 8. Altiere arrived at the Lorain Correctional Institute on May 11.

At the time Judge Reinbold sentenced Altiere to prison, he told Altiere he’d be eligible for judicial release if he behaved while in prison.

Altiere, of Royal Troon Drive in Howland, was sent to prison for violating the terms of his probation on a charge of deception to obtain a dangerous drug.

No hearing in common pleas court has been set in the case.
