Sentencing date set for Lisa Antonini, former Mahoning County treasurer

AKRON — Former Mahoning County Treasurer Lisa Antonini will be sentenced in November on charges she underreported a campaign contribution by a local businessman in 2008.

A judgment entry Tuesday by Judge Sara Lioi of U.S. Northern District of Ohio set 2 p.m. Nov. 13 as the date she will sentence Antonini.

Antonini, also a former Mahoning County Democratic Party chairwoman, entered a guilty plea to a bill of information in June 2011 to a count of honest-services mail fraud.

The plea agreement she entered into called for her full cooperation into any cases that her help was needed in by the federal government.

Honest-services fraud alleges a public officeholder devised a scheme to defraud citizens of their right to honest services through bribery and the concealment of material information.

Antonini of Austintown has been free on bond since she entered her plea.
