UPDATED 4:24 P.M.

Attorney Anthony Calabrese III – who’s expected to plead guilty to federal corruption charges next month – has pleaded not guilty to bribery charges in Cuyahoga County court.

Judge Kathleen Sutula set his bond this afternoon at $100,000.  As a condition of his bond, he has court-supervised release, home detention and he cannot have access to computers.

He and attorneys Marc Doumbas and Giles Marshall are accused of trying to bribe two rape victims in a criminal case. According to the Cuyahoga County prosecutor, the trio offered $150,000 cash to change the women’s testimony between April and November of this year.

The prosecutor says the indictment is part of an ongoing corruption investigation.

Meanwhile, the Plain Dealer is reporting that Calabrese will plead guilty on Jan. 15 to federal charges. He’s accused of racketeering and 19 other crimes, including claims that he paid county consultant J. Kevin Kelley to steer the Cuyahoga County commissioners to buy the Ameritrust complex in 2005. The county never moved into the building and is expected to lose millions when it agrees to sell it early next year.
