VIDEO: DeWine's top prosecutor gets DUI

Bill Schenck was part of AG Office's Limberios investigation and headed up grand jury investigation of a sexploited schizophrenic Sandusky County jail inamte in 2012
Jan 12, 2014

Former Greene County Prosecutor William F. Schenck, now a senior advisor for the Ohio Attorney General's Office, was cited Dec. 2 for a drunk driving offense, according to a news report from Channel 19 WHIO-TV in Cleveland.

The 67-year-old Beavercreek resident was arrested Dec. 2 and charged with OVI and failure to use a turn signal. The arrest was captured on a police cruiser dashcam. The video of his arrest is posted at, a website designed to expose political corruption.

DeWine, who has a long association with Schenck, hired him to serve as a senior advisor after DeWine was elected in 2010. DeWine assigned Schenck to head up the investigation of the sexual exploitation of a 21-year-old schizophrenic inmate in Sandusky County who was denied her medications and placed in a observational jail cell and left there nude. The inmate was encouraged to masturbate and perform other lewd acts by jail guards during a six-hour period on Jan. 10, 2012.

The grand jury and DeWine's office determined that no crime had been committed during the sexual exploitation of the woman. Two jail guards were fired by sheriff Kyle Overmyer, however, after the Register learned of the incident and reported on it. 

Schenck also was deeply involved in the AG's investigation of the death of Jacob Limberios, which also resulted in no criminal indictments. The AG's office determined Sandusky County officials botched the initial investigation and key evidence was destroyed in the hours immediately after Limberios was killed on March 2, 2012.

The AG's office told WHIO News that Schenck is to get alcohol-related treatment but has not been suspended or put on leave. Any disciplinary action for Schenck would occur after court proceedings are over, the news story stated.





I prefer seeing a mugshot of Schenck. The powers that be in corrupt OHIO have disabled the link.

Do this: Go to Google and click on IMAGES and then type in:

William F. Schenck OVI


@cent Here is the mugshot, I found it.

He is wearing the same shirt as the dash cam video, where he clearly had wet his pants.

Thanks for the link DickTracey. We've replaced the photo with the mugshot you provided. 


Thank you Sandusky Register for replacing the photo. Corrupt OHIO needs an official song to go along with the winos and misfits in charge of Ohio's justice.


Thank you for the link.


I am rather curious on what big news story the Sandusky Register is going to pick up on next. I mean after two of the biggest stories they have followed over the last two years have failed or stalled it makes me wonder if they can come up with any other news stories. I am personally getting tired of the same old stories over and over again.


Read my comments and links to get a clue.

Pterocarya frax...

Here are some stories I wish the Register would cover:

JobsOhio Scandals

Why the Inspector general never released the final report on Coingate?

The reason behind the hush hush firing of OEPA director Nally and Chief Elmaraghy after their fight with Bob Murray of Murray Energy.


Centauri I read your last comment on here and I don't think that is news worthy. I don't think the paper will survive if all they carry are poor innocent people who wet themselves. I am talking about real news stories that happen in our area that affect the papers subscribers and stories that make them want to renew their subscriptions with the paper. To be honest if the paper continues to cover these stories like they do I might have to cancel my subscription.


"poor innocent people who wet themselves"

So, is this a lie?

The National Enquirer is hiring!!!

Please report how a 100 pound woman gave birth to a 100 pound baby.

The National Enquirer needs you!!!


Centauri you my friend have missed the point I am trying to make. I for one also saw the video and can clearly see that he did in fact wet his pants. I was making a general statement that had nothing to do with this article. You told me to read your statements and to get a clue so I read the one that you posted on this story. Which if I am not mistaken said he wet himself he should have wore depends. Based on that statement right there how can I get a clue of what story the Register is going to carry next. That is what I was trying to point out.


Perhaps Centauri is directing to you read all of his comments on other story lines. If you were to do that, you might find that there appears to be a pattern of law enforcement and prosecutor misconduct in Ohio that is protected at the highest levels including the office of the Attorney General.

The fact that AG DeWine would hire this man as a Senior Advisor at 67 after he has already retired from one government job (double dipper) when the man is most likely a long time alcoholic (his severely distended abdomen indicates ascites) and entrust the most serious cases to him is outrageous.

This means there is no accountability and poor judgment in the highest law enforcement office in the state and explains why LE and prosecutors in the state believe they are above the law.


Dear PapaJoe,I hope being a Papa that you do not talk about your own children the way you do others children. Remember in my prior post that I said the Grand Jury trial was a mess, I rest my case.....Also definition of slander-the action or crime of making a false spoken statement damaging to a person's reputation; oral defamation. You state that Westerhold posts borderline slander. What do you think the following quote would be? Straight off your keyboard "drug addicted stripper."

I have no sympathy at all for these idiot public officials. After all, they know they're in the public eye. Kudos to the cop that arrested him, who obviously didn't care who he was. This also might shed a different light on the two recent Sandusky County investigations that he was part of.

I don't know if anyone here knows Bill Schenck like I do? I have had the privilege to meet and work with him on several occasions dealing with Jake's case. He is a good man. Mike Dewine is proof of that as he does not throw his life long friend to the curb, because he is just human. If that is how it is suppose to work Shannon, should have thrown me to the curb years ago! I choose to stand beside Bill Schenck and Mike Dewine's decision to help his life long friend. This is the higher standard and the kind of A.G. I want for Ohio. Marianne, Matt, Mark, Charlie, Dan, Bill and Mike, thank you for all you have done. Micheal W. Limberios Sr.


Mr. Limberios: IMO, you were played and badly misled by the AG's office in order that SC LE, Stierwalt, and Henry were protected.

Their "grand jury" was as in the case of women abused in the jail, just a "show trial" to create an illusion of action and to distract from the egregious law enforcement misconduct.


A grand jury is independent of the prosecutor. But the prosecutor can control the outcome of a grand jury. The unethical prosecutor can influence a jury enough to allow a guilty person to go free and allow an innocent person to be punished.

Here is some good reading about how to control the outcome of a grand jury.
"I begin this essay with basic information about grand juries, then tell what happened to our grand jury, and conclude by reflecting on what I learned from this experience. My theme is the tension between the grand jury’s independence and the prosecutor’s desire to control it. The lesson I learned, intellectually and emotionally, is the depth and tenacity of the prosecutor’s assumption that he does control, and has the right to control, the grand jury process. I also learned some lessons about being a client, and believing in oneself and one’s principles."
