Prosecutors Want Ahmad Extradition To Begin

Dayton Daily News

Federal prosecutors are asking a judge to start the process of extraditing the former deputy state treasurer from Pakistan. 39-year-old Amer Ahmad pleaded guilty last December to charges in an alleged kickback scheme at the treasurer's office. The former Chicago comptroller was arrested in Pakistan in April after attempting to enter the country using fake documents. Ahmad worked for two Democratic Ohio treasurers; Rich Cordray, a former Franklin County Treasurer; and Kevin Boyce, a former Columbus City Council member.

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
