CLEVELAND – A Bedford Municipal Court judge accused of misusing his position to have sex with prostitutes was found guilty of five misdemeanor counts, including soliciting and falsification.

Judge Harry Jacob was found not guilty on all remaining felony counts, including possessing criminal tools, tampering with records and tampering with evidence.

Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Judge Brian Corrigan issued the verdict Thursday.

Because Jacob, 57, of Solon, was found guilty of misdemeanors and not felonies, it is possible for him to remain a judge, but that will be determined at a later date.

The sentencing was set for Oct. 15.
