Former Cuyahoga County Commissioner Jimmy Dimora testifies before grand jury

CLEVELAND - Sources inside the Cuyahoga County jail confirm that former Cuyahoga County Commissioner Jimmy Dimora has testified before a grand jury.

It's unknown if he will go before the grand jury again. He is currently locked up in the Cuyahoga County jail.

Sources told NewsChannel5 last week Dimora was brought back to Cleveland to testify in front of a grand jury involving allegations of fraud when the county purchased the AmeriTrust building for $28 million.

Sources told NewsChannel5 that he isn't going anywhere anytime soon.

In 2007, the FBI launched one of the largest probes ever in public corruption in local government. The Cuyahoga County probe has resulted in more than 50 arrests of area politicians, judges and business people.

Dimora was sentenced to 28 years in prison after a jury returned guilty verdicts against him on 29 of 30 criminal counts in March 2012. He was incarcerated at Federal Correctional Institution (FCI) Gilmer in Glenville, West Virginia.
