CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) –
Former Cleveland City Councilman Joe Cimperman entered a guilty plea to 26 misdemeanor counts Friday morning during his initial arraignment.

According to court documents, the offenses occurred from April 2002 through March 2012.
The judge ordered that Cimperman pays a $10,000 fine and ordered a $1,000 bond. His next court appearance is a pre-trial hearing scheduled for May 8 at 9 a.m.
