Ohio Mahong County Probate Judge Mark Belinky Resigns!

Mahoning County Probate Court Judge Mark Belinky resigned Friday evening amid a probe of his dealings by the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation, the FBI and the Mahoning County Sheriff’s Office.

In a letter submitted to Ohio Gove. John Kasich Friday, Belinky said, “Please be advised that the undersigned is the Judge of the Mahoning County Probate Court. I hereby submit my resignation as Judge of the Court effective this date.”

Belinky would not go on camera, but in a phone interview, he said he made the decision in the best interest of his family and himself.

“I was overwhelmingly elected to be probate judge,” Belinky said. “I was honored to help the thousands of people who came to the court. I was honored to serve them, and I’m sorry I can no longer do that.”

Belinky also said he is very worried about the court and he hopes the governor would put a very qualified person in the position.

Political leaders are calling Belinky’s resignation another black eye for the Valley.

It's not a black eye. It's a good thing.

Kudos to the FBI for their investigation. We would welcome you to investigae a number of judges (both on the bench, and recently "resigned") in the Cook County Probate Court (Chicago IL).
