BEDFORD, Ohio- A judge and a law director are now on leave in Bedford.
And Friday, FOX 8’s I-Team learned that state and county investigators served subpoenas on City Law Director Ken Schuman as part of an ongoing investigation.
The Ohio Attorney General’s office has confirmed to FOX 8’s I-Team that agents with the Bureau of Criminal Investigation assisted other law enforcement officials in serving the subpoena to Schuman’s home and office.
Schuman, as well as other city officials, including a council member, city manager Henry Angelo, and Tom Day, clerk of courts have been subpoenaed to testify in front of a grand jury. Sources say a council member testified today.
Day told FOX 8 last week he was subpoenaed to testify and was also asked to bring two court cases with him. One of the court cases dealt with a solicitation charge that was reduced to a disorderly conduct charge. Both of the cases were heard by Judge Harry Jacob.
Jacob and Schuman are both on leave. Both requested to take leaves in November. Bedford officials say they do not know how long the two will be on leave.
Angelo declined to say what type of questions he was asked during the grand jury.
The county prosecutor’s office would not comment.
