Number of charges reduced in Oakhill Renaissance case


CLEVELAND, Ohio (WKBN) – The judge in the Oakhill Renaissance Place corruption trial has reportedly agreed to reduce the number of charges against the defendants.

WKBN is working to find what the exact number of charges will be, but it still remains that current Mayor John McNally, former county auditor Mike Sciortino and attorney Martin Yavorcik are charged in the case.

They are accused of trying to stop the county’s purchase of the old South Side Hospital and to move the Department of Job and Family Services out of the Cafaro-owned McGuffey Mall.

First News will be in Cleveland when the trial begins on February 29th.
