Cleveland Councilman Zack Reed
CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -
19 Action News is tracking new developments in the drunk driving case against Cleveland Councilman Zack Reed.
The Municipal Court says the Ohio Supreme Court will now appoint a judge to hear the case.
Tuesday, Judge Pinkey Carr stepped down citing a conflict of interest. Now, the court says the other eleven municipal court judges feel they have a conflict, too. A new judge is expected to be appointed in a few days.
Meantime, a disciplinary hearing was held Wednesday morning for a city jail supervisor accused of giving the councilman special treatment in jail. That included the use of an office phone and allowing Reed to use his own cell phone. A decision on that discipline is also expected in a few days.
