GIRARD, Ohio (WKBN) – Six of the 14 men picked up in a “John Sting” in Liberty over the weekend appeared in person for their arraignments.
Court officials say William Shaw Sr. never showed up for court Tuesday.
James Lohmier is expected to appear Wednesday.
Six others, including MLB umpire Brian O’Nora, filed written waivers of arraignment and entered not guilty pleas.
The remaining six all pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor charges of soliciting and possessing criminal tools in Girard Municipal Court.
The judge set their personal recognizance bonds at $5,000.
As a condition of bond, they’re not permitted on the premises of any hotel or motel in Liberty Township.
They’re due back in court on March 3 for a preliminary hearing.
