COLUMBUS, Ohio - Youngstown Environmental Health Director Cicero Davis III has agreed to give up his state certificate needed to perform many of his required duties.

A hearing had been scheduled for Wednesday morning before the Ohio State Board of Sanitarian Registration in Columbus for Davis, whose duties include restaurant inspection and food preparation.

The hearing was in response to allegations that Davis engaged in activities that constituted dereliction of duty, incompetence, or unprofessional behaviors.

That hearing was canceled after Davis admitted to the allegations and agreed to surrender his registration as a sanitarian.

Under the consent agreement, Davis agrees to immediately cease from engaging in any activity that requires a sanitarian registration.

According to an Internal Affairs Investigation conducted by Youngstown police, Davis admitted skipping inspections at Youngstown State University, a nursing home, the Ohio State Penitentiary and other locations in Youngstown's second ward during 2011 and 2012.

Police say signatures were falsified many inspections were not conducted.

In addition, the investigation also turned up pornographic images on the city computer assigned to Davis.

As a result of that investigation, on April 9, 2013 Davis admitted his wrongdoing and signed a last chance agreement with the Youngstown City Health District.

Davis accepted a 60 day suspension without pay, however was allowed to use much of his unused vacation leave. He also agreed not to appeal the discipline and suspension.

Since Davis is prohibited from performing any duties that require the sanitation registration, his status as Youngstown Environmental Health Director is uncertain.
