Cafaro Company named in corruption case evidence

Oakhill Case

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – A local developer has been publicly named in the case against Youngstown’s mayor and the Mahoning County auditor.

Prosecutors turned over evidence in a corruption case against Youngstown Mayor John McNally and Mahoning County Auditor Michael Sciortino officially linking the Cafaro Company to the case.

The list of evidence names Cleveland law firm Ulmer and Berne as the offices where John McNally is accused of faxing the county’s confidential offer to buy what is now Oakhill Renaissance Place. The law firm worked for the Cafaro Company and was helping the developer to stop county offices from being moved from a Cafaro owned building in Youngstown.

McNally was a county commissioner at the time.

The evidence turned over this week also includes more than 500 hours of audio recordings made by two confidential informants to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
