A former Cuyahoga County information technology administrator pleaded guilty Tuesday to corruption charges.
Emily McNeeley was convicted of one count of obstructing official business and three counts of dereliction of duty.
“Our prosecutors continue to untangle the snarl of public corruption in Cuyahoga County,” Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost said. “Taxpayers deserve honest, clean, transparent government – the kind that works for the people, not themselves.”
A Cuyahoga County Grand Jury indicted McNeeley in Jan. 2019.
Yost said she steered over $1 million in contracts to Hyland Software, where her spouse was manager of the government contracting section.
Yost said McNeeley also recommended a $23 million contract to Ciber ERP, without disclosing her family’s history with the company.
