MANSFIELD — A former parole officer for the Ohio Department of Youth Services is accused of hiring prostitutes while on duty.
Edward Favers, 55, is indicted on charges of theft in office, two counts of tampering with records, four counts of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, three counts of unauthorized use of property, four counts of procuring or soliciting and four counts of promoting prostitution.
Indictments were released Monday.
Richland County Assistant Prosecutor Gary Bishop explained the charges against Favers.
“He is alleged to have been picking up one or more prostitutes and taking them to his pontoon boat at Charles Mill Marina,” Bishop said. “He is alleged to have falsified his employee time card and other records.”
Authorities allege the offenses happened between June 2011 and June 2012.
Favers was placed on administrative leave in June and retired Oct. 12. Bishop said Favers worked with Richland County Juvenile Court and covered Ashland County.
The grand jury also indicted Lloyd Tate, 55, on charges of attempted murder and felonious assault, both with repeat violent offender and forfeiture specifications, in connection with a Sept. 7 incident.
“Basically, what’s being alleged is he was on Greenwood Avenue and ran over an individual with his (Chevrolet) truck,” Bishop said.
“It’s alleged he went over railroad ties into a yard.”
The victim, a 48-year-old man, suffered a collapsed lung, two broken legs and serious burns, Bishop said.
“Mr. Tate only indicates that there was an argument, and he was punched by the alleged victim,” the assistant prosecutor said.
Also indicted was Steven R. Isaac, 29, on charges of arson (five counts), illegal manufacture of methamphetamine and illegal assembly or possession of chemicals for manufacture of methamphetamine.
The incident happened Sept. 11 at an eight-unit apartment building at 545 Gruber Ave.
“There were other occupants in the apartment,” Bishop said. “The alleged activity resulted in a fire. He was allegedly making meth, and the fire caused chemical burns to his hands.”
No one else was injured in the fire.
Surely one of the FIRED APA SUPERVISOR’s BUDS!
