Craig Beach solicitor vows to appeal court decision on former police chief

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio  - "There's no way we're taking Joe Borosky back." That's Craig Beach Village solicitor Gary Van Brocklin's reaction to a judge's ruling that village council was wrong in the way it fired former police chief Joseph Borosky.

Borosky filed a lawsuit seeking reinstatement with back pay after village council fired him in August of last year following complaints of using excessive force.

One of the complaints stemmed from cruiser video which showed Borosky pulling a woman from her car and handcuffing her during a traffic stop.

Mahoning County Common Pleas Judge Lou D'Apolito issued a ruling last week that agreed with Borosky's contention that he was denied due process.

The judge ruled that village council's first meeting on August 9, 2012 did not have enough council members in attendance to remove the chief, and that Borosky was not properly notified of a second meeting on August 29, 2012 to "re-vote" on Borosky's dismissal.

Solicitor Van Brocklin says the village will definitely appeal the court decision.

In a separate criminal case, Borosky is scheduled to go on trial in Mahoning County Court for perjury in October.

In April, a grand jury indicted Borosky and Craig Beach council member Wanda Sabol amid allegations that they lied about evidence being used in a disciplinary investigation stemming from the excessive force incident.

Sabol is also scheduled for trial on a perjury charge in October.
