Pedophile Arrests 2.0
Maj. Jeff Allen of the Mahoning County Sheriff’s office said he was surprised that a major sting operation targeting pedophiles nabbed an elementary school teacher with Youngstown City Schools. “It’s concerning,” Allen said. “Doing these operations you have to be prepared for whoever walks into that door.” James Norkus, 24, of Salem is suspended without pay from his position as a physical education teacher at Kirkmere Elementary pending the outcome of charges of importuning, attempted sexual conduct with a minor and possession of criminal tools. He has worked in the district since August 2017.
