Disgraced attorney pleads guilty in corruption scandal
Anthony O. Calabrese enters Federal Court in Akron
AKRON, OH (WOIO) -
Only 19 Action News cameras rolling as disgraced attorney Anthony O. Calabrese entered Federal Court in Akron to plead guilty in the county corruption investigation.
He pleaded guilty to 18 of the 20 counts. The main one was Count 1, racketeering. The counts that were dismissed were Count 10, which dealt with Alternatives Agency as it related to an unnamed relative and Count 20 which had to do with the obstruction that dealt with "getting our stories straight" with J Kevin Kelley and the Ameritrust deal.
When asked by 19 Action News if he regretted the damage he had done to his family's name, he said nothing and walked briskly into court.
Prosecutors were expected to ask that he be held immediately as they contend in court filings that his indictment in an alleged bribe involving a rape victim is a violation of his bond. No word yet if he was immediately taken into custody.
