The trial of Richland County Health Commissioner Martin Tremmel has been pushed back to October 15th.
Tremmel is charged with domestic violence, in connection with a July incident on Kelley’s Island. He was scheduled to stand trial yesterday in Erie County Municipal Court, but it was delayed, due to new motions filed this week. Among them—a request to exclude a recording of his wife’s 911 call, and video from a body cam worn by the arresting officer. Tremmel was arrested July 11th, after his wife claimed she had been struck numerous times. Both had been drinking. Tremmel denied the allegations, and several days later, his wife claimed she wasn’t abused. He’s on paid leave as Richland County’s health commissioner. His wife is a school administrator in suburban Columbus…She too is on paid leave.
