CLEVELAND– One of the players in the Cuyahoga County corruption scandal was sentenced Thursday.
Federal law enforcement officials said Anthony Calabrese III received nine years in prison.
In a press release, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI Cleveland office, Stephen D. Anthony, said, “Anthony Calabrese misused his status as an attorney to facilitate bribes and foster corruption. Today’s sentence reflects the fact that Calabrese was deeply involved in a variety of bribery schemes involving a school district, a halfway house and the infamous trip to Las Vegas, just to name a few.”
Calabrese, 40, had plead guilty to 18 counts which include racketeering, and conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services fraud.
