Businessman Sentenced In Corruption Scandal

One of the last key figures in the Cuyahoga County corruption scandal is heading to prison.

A federal judge has sentenced businessman Michael Forlani to eight years behind bars after he was convicted of bribery and racketeering. Forlani paid former county Commissioner and former county Democratic Party chair Jimmy Dimora thousands of dollars in bribes in order to win government contracts. Dimora is appealing his sentence.
