Lawyers for Oakhill defendants can question confidential informant

Mcnally Yavorcik Sciortino

CLEVELAND, Ohio (WYTV) – Lawyers for the three men accused in the Oakhill purchasing corruption case will be able to question one of the government’s key witnesses.

Tuesday afternoon, the Cleveland judge hearing the case ruled defense lawyers will be able to demand a confidential informant appear and be questioned under oath about information he may have given to investigators prior to indictments being handed up last year.

Youngstown Mayor John McNally, former Mahoning County Auditor Mike Sciortino and local attorney Marty Yavorcik are facing dozens of charges for their roles in trying to keep the county from buying the former Southside Hospital back in 2006.

McNally, Sciortino and Yavorcik are set to go on trial next March.
