Cuyahoga corruption snitch gets six years in prison
J. Kevin Kelley was handed a six-year prison sentence for his involvement in the Cuyahoga corruption case, considered as one of the biggest in the county.
Kelley was the first defendant to offer his cooperation to the FBI who was investigating the corruption issue.
He admitted to being the one who collects and pays off the bribes to county officials.
During his sentencing, Kelley issued an apology to his family as well as the taxpayers of Cuyahoga County.
Kelley has also been ordered to pay restitution of about $700,000.

Famous dealer of wine convicted for fraud
The jury returned a guilty verdict against Rudy Kurniawan, a star wine collector, for faking vintage wines, which he apparently just manufactured from his home.
Kurniawan was convicted for fraud and is looking at a massive 40-year sentence.
Kurniawan was once known as among the top five collectors of wine in the world.
Prosecutors accused Kurniawan of earning millions from selling and auctioning fake vintage wines.
Found in the home that Kurniawan shared with his mother were unlabeled bottles and labels of Burgundy and Bordeaux wines.
Suspicions against Kurniawan started during an auction in 2008 wherein he offered to sell Domaine Ponsot wines.
But it wasn't until a 2012 wine auction in London that Kurniawan was arrested.
Los Angeles criminal lawyer Jerome Mooney, defending for Kurniawan, said his client was not trying to defraud people. Instead, all he wanted was to belong.
NFL player's non-cooperation sees theft charges dropped against woman who stole his jewelry
Theft charges against Subhanna Beyah were dropped after her victim, New York Giants' Shaun Rogers, refused to cooperate with the authorities.
Jonathan Meltz, Beyah's lawyer in Miami, could not be contacted to comment on the issue.
Miami prosecutors believed that Beyah did to Rogers what she did to two other men, wherein she drugged them before stealing their valuables.
According to the police, Rogers had met Beyah at the nightclub of the hotel where he was staying.
Together with another couple, they had gone up to his room where he went to sleep while the others were partying. Before he went to sleep, he put his jewelry inside a safe in the room. When he woke up, Beyah was already gone and so was his jewelry worth almost $500,000.
Rogers had told the prosecution that he was not willing to cooperate during the one time he spoke with them.
Despite the failure of the theft charges to prosper, the prosecution instead will go ahead with charging Beyah for violating her probation wherein she is looking at a 20-year prison sentence if convicted.
20 years in prison for murder conviction in nightclub shooting
A murder conviction will have Mark Anthony Garcia spending 20 years in prison for the death of Michael Angelo Morales.
Morales was shot to death outside a nightclub in 2008.
Garcia's first murder trial ended in a mistrial but he was not so lucky in the second trial.
Albert Acevedo, a defense attorney in San Antonio, said that his client, Garcia, was not the killer.
Instead he was the one who tried to stop another man, Hector Lozano, from shooting Morales.
Lozano is still awaiting for his own trial.
