Hearing for former mayor moved
The preliminary hearing for a former Campbell mayor, George Krinos, was moved to another date Tuesday.
Krinos, 36, of Boardman is charged with four counts of passing bad checks.
A preliminary hearing is now set for 10 a.m. March 25 in Mahoning County Area Court here.
Krinos is accused of writing bad payroll checks to two of his employees in December at Krinos Group, a financial advisory firm he heads.
The employees 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 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.
They were also told those checks were bad.
