Charges pile up against Ohio municipal judge



Published: Wed, March 5, 2014 @ 9:45 a.m.

BEDFORD HEIGHTS, Ohio (AP) — A suburban Cleveland municipal judge indicted last year on bribery and prostitution-related charges is facing new charges of tampering with evidence and records in the case.

The Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office announced the new grand jury indictment Tuesday adding charges against Bedford Municipal Court Judge Harry Jacob III.

The charges include two counts of tampering with evidence, one count of tampering with records, one count of possessing criminal tools and one misdemeanor count of failure to report a felony.

In December, Jacob was charged with six misdemeanor counts of soliciting sex from three women. He is also charged with bribery, and three counts of promoting prostitution, which are felonies.

Wow. He'd fit right in here in Mahoning County with Judges Bailey, Polivischak, Kerrigan, Cronin, etc.

Finally. A municipal court judge gets his tit in a ringer and by golly.... it's not Youngstown.
