The charge against Alyssa Lenhoff was filed late Monday. Prosecutors allege she acted improperly in securing a $6,500 grant from Dann’s office for the Youngstown State University journalism program she directs. Dann canceled payment when questioned by a lawyer in his office.
Lenhoff is to appear in court in Columbus on Monday. She filed for divorce from Dann last week, two years after he admitted to an affair with an employee as part of a sweeping sexual harassment scandal that prompted his resignation.
