Posted: Updated:
CLEVELAND, Ohio - Youngstown Mayor John McNally, Mahoning County Auditor Mike Sciortino, and Valley attorney Martin Yavorcik are scheduled to answer corruption charges on Thursday.

The three are scheduled to appear in a Cleveland courtroom for arraignment on 83 charges alleging that they took part in a criminal enterprise with an unnamed local businessman in connection with the investigation into the purchase of the Oakhill Renaissance Place by the Mahoning County Commissioners.

The three allegedly fell under the influence of two unnamed local businessman, and businesswoman who offered them money, services and other benefits.

The case has similarities with an August 2010 indictment by the Mahoning County Grand Jury that handed up criminal conspiracy charges against Sciortino, McNally, who was county commissioner at the time as well as retired millionaire mall developer Anthony Cafaro, Sr., and former Treasurer John Reardon.
