CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Former Cuyahoga County Commissioner Jimmy Dimora has been released from federal prison and is now under home confinement, according to attorney Philip Kushner.

Dimora, who was serving a 23-year prison sentence at Devens Federal Medical Center in Massachusetts, was released under the CARES Act, which looks at an inmate’s age, health risk factors and time served.

The CARES Act is a COVID-19 policy, which expires Sunday, June 11.

He was scheduled to be released in 2030.

In June of 2022, United States District Judge Sara Lioi reduced the former county commissioner’s prison sentence by five years.

In March 2012, Dimora was convicted of 32 corruption-related charges; including, racketeering, bribery, and conspiracy.

Federal prosecutors said Dimora accepted more than 100 bribes, tried to fix eight court cases, and had contractors do work at his home for free or reduced prices.
