Evidence suppression hearing for Boardman schools supervisor
An evidence suppression hearing is scheduled for Hugh Braham, supervisor of transportation at Boardman schools, who was ticketed for operating a vehicle impaired on May 17. He’s to appear in Mahoning County Area Court here at 10 a.m. on Aug. 20.
Braham and his lawyer filed a motion to suppress on June 12, according to court records. A pre-trial hearing with the prosecutor has taken place but the matters are not resolved.
A request for modification of Braham’s driving privileges was requested on Tuesday. Braham was granted driving privileges on June 25. He’s allowed to drive from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. seven days a week.
“We [the court] normally don’t do that,” Judge Joseph M. Houser told Braham’s lawyer.
It was explained to Judge Houser that there are times during the school year when Braham is required to be on the road during other hours of the day. But the judge said bad weather months aren’t near and buses won’t be running for another seven weeks.
