Cuyahoga County corruption: Jimmy Dimora co-defendant Michael Gabor sentenced to 10 years in prison

CLEVELAND - Convicted felon and Jimmy Dimora co-defendant, Michael Gabor, was sentenced Tuesday to 10 years, one month in federal prison on corruption charges.

A federal judge also ordered Gabor pay $22,250 in restitution to Cuyahoga County.

Gabor asked for less than five years in prison on the racketeering and corruption charges, but a judge disagreed.

Gabor was convicted by the same jury that convicted former Cuyahoga County Commissioner Jimmy Dimora last March.

Gabor was found guilty of providing assistance with a divorce case involving Cleveland businessman Steve Pumper, who was doing business with the county.

According to testimony, Gabor provided information to Dimora with the expectation that Dimora would give Pumper a phone number of someone who could walk him through the process. But Gabor's defense attorney argued no bribe was ever paid.

In another instance, Gabor was convicted of paying $5,000 to former Cuyahoga County Auditor Frank Russo for a job in Russo's office.

Dimora was earlier sentenced to 28 years in prison on multiple corruption charges.
