AKRON, Ohio (AP) — A former hospital executive sentenced to nine years in prison in a public corruption investigation in Cleveland has lost his bid for a shorter sentence based on his claim of an out-of-control sex addiction.

A federal judge in Akron ruled Thursday that 66-year-old John Carroll never mentioned a sex addiction until after he pleaded guilty and was sentenced.

Carroll, a former vice president of Cleveland's MetroHealth Medical Center, pleaded guilty to bribery, making false statements and tax fraud.

He was charged with accepting nearly $700,000 worth of rugs, jewelry, a Jacuzzi and trips to India and Japan in exchange for steering construction contracts.

According to The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer (bit.ly/Yr5387), Carroll says the sex addiction caused him diminished capacity when he pleaded guilty.
