House Judicial Oversight Seeks Charging Committee in DA Case

Bebb, recommended Wednesday that a charging committee be formed, the Cleveland Daily Banner reports. Though the attorney general's office found that none of the allegations it reviewed rose to the level of criminal charges, its final report stated Bebb and his office engaged in practices and recordkeeping that evidenced poor judgment, deficient recordkeeping and insufficient attention to the appropriate use of public resources.
