Ex-deputy director of court criminal division admits he stole from the division

In The Region:

The man who used to be deputy director of the criminal division in the Cuyahoga County Clerk of Courts office has admitted he stole nearly $9,000 from the office – a few dollars at a time.  WKSU’s M.L. Schultze has more.

Mark Lime has pleaded guilty to 37 felonies including theft in office, tampering with records and unlawful use of a computer.

His sentence will include paying $8,715 in restitution. That was much was decided when he entered his plea. He’ll learn the rest on Sept. 10, when he’s to be sentenced. 

The 57-year-old Lime was named deputy director of the criminal division in 2002. He kept the job until two years ago, when he was fired. A year later, he was indicted. And now he’s admitted to stealing some of the money by pocketing crime fees that were to be paid for victim reparations and then doctoring the books. And when defendants failed to show up for court, he’d steal some of their forfeited bond payments.

Prosecutor Tim McGinty says Lime “disgraced not only himself, but the hard-working, honest public servants” in the county.
