Prosecutor: Doumbas Tried to Bribe Rape Victims

Westlake attorney Marc Doumbas indicted on additional charge in corruption case

Westlake attorney Marc G. Doumbas has been indicted for another charge of bribery, accused of trying to bribe two rape victims.

Doumbas, 44, has been indicted along with Anthony O. Calabrese III, 40, of Bentleyville,  and Giles Timothy Marshall, 63, of Olmsted Falls, in the case.

Doumbas had been charged with two counts of bribery earlier this month. Friday's indictment is an additional charge.

The Cuyahoga County Prosecutor's Office said in a statement Friday that between April 19 and Nov. 6 of this year, Doumbas, Calabrese and Marshall tried to get two rape victims in a pending criminal case to change their testimony for $150,000 in cash, including a $6,000 "finder's fee."

The indictments stem from an ongoing corruption investigation. A search of Calabrese's home on Dec. 18 yielded more evidence, which led to Friday's indictments, the prosecutor's office said.

Doumbas, who has a law office in Cleveland, and Marshall will be arraigned on all their current charges at the Cuyahoga Court of Common Pleas on Jan. 3. Calabrese was scheduled to be arraigned Friday afternoon.
