CLEVELAND -- Three local attorneys, including Anthony Calabrese III, have been indicted on bribery charges, Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Timothy McGinty announced Friday.

Prosecutors say between April 19, 2012 and November 6, 2012, Calabrese, Marc G. Doumbas, 44, of Westlake, and Giles Timothy Marshall, 63, of Olmsted Falls, tried to bribe two separate rape victims in a pending criminal case.

The three men allegedly sought to have the victim change their testimony in exchange for $150,000, including a $6,000 finder fee.

The indictment is part of the ongoing corruption investigation. Officials earlier this month executed a search warrant at the Bentleyville residence of Calabrese, where additional evidence was collected.

Calabrese turned himself in to the Bentleyville Police Department Thursday night after learning of his arrest warrant.

He appeared in court via video Friday afternoon.

The judge ordered Calabrese be put on house arrest. He also was ordered to have no access to a computer.

He was released from the Cuyahoga County Jail after posting $100,000 bond.
