Home of embattled attorney Anthony Calabrese III raided by Cleveland police

BENTLEYVILLE, Ohio - NewsChannel5 has confirmed that Cleveland police and the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor's Office have raided the home of embattled attorney Anthony Calabrese III Tuesday morning.

Calabrese was last indicted in connection to the Cuyahoga County corruption probe involving former county commissioner Jimmy Dimora.

After a new six month bribery investigation, officers raided Calabrese's Pine Crest Drive home around 7 a.m. and seized several pieces of evidence.

Calabrese is scheduled to stand trial in connection to the corruption charges in February. In an 18 count indictment, he was charged with racketeering, bribery, conspiracy to commit fraud and other corruption-related charges.

In addition to Calabrese's house being raided, the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor said attorneys Marc Doumbas, 44, of Westlake, and Giles Timothy Marshall, 63, of Olmsted Falls, were each indicted on two counts of bribery.

Between April 19, 2012 and Nov. 6, 2012, Doumbas and Marshall are accused of attempting to bribe a witness on two separate occasions. The attorneys reportedly tried to have a victim on a criminal case change their testimony in exchange for cash.

Tuesday's indictment is part of the ongoing Cuyahoga County corruption investigation.
