Ex-Delaware County judge guilty of theft

DELAWARE ó After deliberating for about eight hours Thursday, a jury returned early Friday to find a long-time attorney and former Delaware County judge guilty of theft.

Michael C. Hoague, 62, closed his eyes as the jurors individually affirmed their finding in Delaware County Common Pleas Court on felony theft and tampering with records charges, stemming from incidents in 2012 and 2013 in which he assisted in a rape case and later was appointed public defender as co-counsel.

The case focused on $5,000 that Hoague received as a public defender and payments he had negotiated with the family of an indigent Ashley man, Timothy Hamon, who faced sexual abuse charges.

In closing arguments, Brad Tammaro, special prosecutor in the case, told the jury that Hoague was deceptive in failing to disclose more than $8,000 Hamonís family had paid him prior to Hoague being appointed a public defender in the case.
