COLUMBUS, Ohio (WKBN) – The future of Youngstown Mayor John McNally’s law license could be up to a panel of his peers.

Members of the Supreme Court’s Board of Commissioners on Professional Conduct will hold a hearing, looking into Mayor John McNally’s conviction.

McNally pleaded guilty early last year to misdemeanor charges (falsification, attempted unlawful use of a telecommunications device and attempted unlawful influence of a public official) in connection with Mahoning County’s purchase of the Oakhill Renaissance Place.

In addition to being mayor, McNally is also an attorney.

A three-member panel will eventually issue a recommendation, but the final decision will be up to the Supreme Court justices.

That could take up to a year.
