North Lima woman sent to CCA for in-house drug treatment

YOUNGSTOWN — A former Youngstown State University assistant women’s softball coach on probation for a drug conviction will now be spending time in an in-house treatment facility.

Gina L. Rango, 27, of Woodworth Road, North Lima, appeared today before Judge James C. Evans of Mahoning County Common Pleas Court for a hearing and pleaded guilty to a probation violation. Rango is on three years’ probation after her conviction on four felony-four counts of trafficking in drugs.

Rango violated probation by testing positive for cocaine and opiates. She was also to complete a program through TASC — Treatment Alternatives to Street Crimes — and she failed to do that.

Judge Evans continued her three-year probation, but ordered her to in-house treatment at Community Corrections Association Inc. on Market Street for an unspecified amount of time.
