Trial begins for Bedford judge

CLEVELAND -- The trial for Bedford Municipal Court Judge Harry Jacob begins Wednesday at the Justice Center.

He has pleaded not guilty to multiple charges in connection with the operation of a brothel.

Back in September, police raided the Walsh Professional Center in Bedford, and found a brothel being run on the top floor of the building.

Upon investigation, they found that one of the women working there was connected to a corruption probe.

That led them to Jacob, 57, who is now facing multiple charges from tampering and obstruction of justice to promoting prostitution and corruption.

The state charges that he solicited sex from at least three prostitutes, supervised at least two women and gave special treatment in court to a woman he paid for sex.
