Diane Vettori will now serve jail time

CLEVELAND, Ohio (WKBN) – A former local judge and lawyer is facing another round of punishment.

Diane Vettori was sentenced to 30 months in prison after pleading guilty to stealing between $100,000 and $300,000 from a dead client’s home in Boardman.

Vettori already went through probate court where she was ordered to pay back $209,000.

The attorney served as judge of the Mahoning County Area Court from 2002 until charges were filed against her.

She was suspended from the seat after criminal charges were filed.

Thursday, Vettori’s husband, Ismael Caraballo, was also sentenced to probation for his part in the crime.
