News

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – A Mahoning County businessman facing more than 100 criminal charges was booked and released from the Mahoning County Jail on Friday.

Dominic Marchionda was indicted earlier this week. He, along with his companies, face bribery, theft, tampering with records and fraud charges. 

Investigators with the Ohio Attorney General’s Office said he used city grant money for his personal gain, and that $25,000 was used to bribe a city official.

Marchionda’s attorney rejected the State’s characterizations and say they will defend his years of development work with evidence in a court of law.
