2 local attorneys face federal charges

Cochran and Atway

CLEVELAND, Ohio (WYTV) – The fate of two lawyers from the Valley is in the hands of a federal jury.

Neil Atway of Youngstown and Scott Cochran of Austintown, who are partners in a downtown Youngstown law firm, have been on trial for the past few weeks on extortion and other charges. They were indicted a year ago, along with one of their clients, after being accused of demanding money from another man, as well as lying to the FBI.

Jurors in the case began their deliberations Friday afternoon and will continue next week.
