Sciortino traffic stop report going to attorney general’s office


The results of an investigation about a traffic stop involving Mahoning County Auditor Michael Sciortino and the Mahoning County Sheriff’s office May 26 are being forwarded to the state Attorney General’s Office.

Prosecutor Paul Gains and Sheriff Jerry Greene made the decision after a meeting in Gains’ office late this morning to go over the report of the investigation, which was done by the Summit County Sheriff’s office.

Sciortino also released a statement saying in part: “I am deeply regretful for the unfortunate circumstances of that evening.”

Sciortino was pulled over on U.S. 422 for a report of a drunken driver and was briefly detained after flunking a field sobriety test.

But two sheriff’s supervisors intervened, and instead Sciortino was driven home by one of the supervisors. Greene suspended one supervisor, denoted another and referred the sergeant who made the initial stop to the department’s disciplinary procedures.

I agree with you JS. Going after this type of crime is senseless. Just llike bring the prisonner back to Mahoning country to file charges against him when he was already doing 30 to life. Pretty soon no one will run for public office. Public officials are human and do make mistakes, but is this instance going to hinder his performance. I would llike to know who opened their big mouth and leaked this out to the media. The media should stick to reporting the news, not this crap. Favors have been going on since the dawn of time. I am not saying that I support the drunk driving, but what if he was a friend of this officer. The same results.
