Krinos hearing date on bad check charges postponed
The preliminary hearing for a former Campbell mayor, George Krinos, was moved to another date on Tuesday. Krinos, 36, of Boardman is charged with four counts of passing bad checks.
A preliminary hearing on the charges was set for 10 a.m. Tuesday, but it has been moved to 10 a.m. March 25 in Boardman court.
Krinos is accused of writing bad payroll checks to two of his employees in December at Krinos Group, a financial advisory firm that Krinos heads.
The victims told police Krinos gave one of them a check for $1,948.50 and another for $2,500. They were told not to deposit them until after 5 p.m. Dec. 17, but both employees were told twice by the bank that the checks were bad.
The employees then were told the checks given to them came from the wrong bank account and new checks would be issued. One employee received $1,491.37 and the other $1,745 and some change. Again they were told the checks were bad.
Krinos was charged in January.
