Sentencing: Two more players in the corruption scandal sentenced

Posted by Web Staff - email | Facebook | Twitter

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Two more figures in the county corruption probe learned their fate Wednesday.

First, former construction company executive Nilesh Patel pleaded guilty to bribery.

In return, he gets a federal "vacation" of 3 1/2 years (all expenses paid).

Patel paid bribes to former MetroHealth Medical Center VP John Carroll.

Then there's Dennis Dooley.

He wanted a better job with the county and paid corruption figure Kevin Kelley five-thousand bucks to get it.

And believe it or not, that was after the feds raided the administration building.

His guilty plea got him 27 months in prison.

And oh by the way, he didn't get the job.
