Judge Cronin

The Youngstown Vindicator has the story of Judge Cronin who was a Youngstown-area Common Pleas judge.  She took an $18,000 loan from a wealthy Youngstown family to pay gambling debts while she was sitting repeatedly on cases, the Cafaro famly construction and other businesses had in front of her as a Judge.  Of course the other side never knew any of this.

The judicial faud is going to cost Judge Cronin 7 years behind bars.  The loan in itself was ok, the failure to disclose the loan and the subsequent adjudication of cases of cases for the Cafaro constituted faud.
