Former Cuyahoga County Employees Arraigned in court

(Cleveland) - Three Cuyahoga County officials who resigned their positions in November, were arraigned in court today, including the man who was director of the cuyahoga county jail.

Kenneth Mills pleaded not guilty to 8 counts, including obstruction of official business, and tampering with records. His bond was set at $10,000. Mills was indicted after last year's critical review of the county jail where 8 inmates died. Mills had no corrections experience when he was hired.

Two other county workers who were indicted after a corruption probe appeared with Mills this morning. They are Emily McNeeley, former general counsel for the Cuyahoga County Department of Information Technology, and Douglas Dykes, Cuyahoga County Chief Talent Officer. They pleaded not guilty with bonds also set at $10,000.

The trio has a pretrial hearing set for February 11th.
