Former Ohio lawmaker gets 3 years in prison

Published: Tue, January 22, 2013 @ 12:05 p.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — Former Ohio state Rep. Clayton Luckie has been sentenced to three years in prison after pleading guilty to grand theft and seven other felonies.

The Dayton Democrat apologized in court today in Franklin County after agreeing to a deal that added the grand theft count and dropped 42 remaining felony charges against him.

Prosecutors said Luckie skimmed nearly $130,000 in campaign funds for personal use and failed to list campaign expenditures for six years. He was indicted in October.

Luckie announced he wouldn’t seek re-election amid the investigation but declined to resign, serving out a fourth term that ended Dec. 31.

He’ll go to prison March 18 and have to pay back about $12,000 of his state salary.

When the Vindy didn't put the party of the lawmaker in the headline, I knew it was a Democrat. Sure enough, paragraph two, it shows Democrat. Vindy will always suppress the truth and shade the headlines to push liberal agendas.
The press used to be a watchdog for the people. Now the Vindy just pushes their liberal beliefs on their paying subscribers.
