Former Macedonia mayor charged with burglary, violating protection

MACEDONIA, Ohio — Former Macedonia Mayor Joseph Migliorini was indicted last week on charges accusing him of violating a protection order against his ex-girlfriend and burglary, court records show. 

Investigators said Migliorini, 65, violated a protection ordered in August issued by the state of Florida after he burglarized a home in the 9800 block of Creekside Way, according to Streetsboro police.

His former girlfriend was visiting a friend, the homeowner, when Migliorini he entered the home. Migliorini’s girlfriend and friend soon called police.

Migliorini later surrendered to Streetsboro police. 

The former mayor is scheduled to be arraigned on the indicted charges Oct. 15 at 11 a.m. before Portage County Common Pleas Judge Laurie Pittman, according to Portage County Common Pleas court records. 

The embattled mayor has struggled with criminal woes since he was re-elected in 2015. He resigned as mayor in July after he pulled his girlfriend’s hair and slapped her outside a Palm Beach, Florida restaurant. Migliorini also served as mayor from 1988 to 2001.

He was charged with misdemeanor battery in the Florida incident.
