The mayor of Youngstown is scheduled to be sentenced today on the corruption charges to which he pleaded guilty to a month ago.
Mayor John McNally pleaded guilty to four misdemeanor charges. All were related to his time in the mid-2000s as a Mahoning County commissioner and his attempt to block the county from moving offices from a building owned by a powerful developer.
He admitted sharing a confidential county letter with a law firm representing the developer. But right after he entered it, McNally described his plea as simply a matter of expediency.
