Former YSU part-time assistant coach arrested, charged with drug trafficking


YOUNGSTOWN — A former part-time Youngstown State University assistant women’s softball coach is in the Mahoning County jail without bond after having been arrested this afternoon on a secret indictment charging her with four counts of Oxycodone trafficking.

Gina L. Rango, 26, who was indicted by a county grand jury Thursday, was arrested at her Woodworth Road residence in North Lima by the Mahoning Valley Drug Task Force after an eight-month investigation.

If convicted of all counts, she faces up to 16 years in prison. The softball season is over, and Rango won’t be returning for the 2011 season, a university spokesman said.
