Sheriff Calls for Investigation into Sciortino Traffic Stop


A traffic stop that ended in Mahoning County Auditor Michael Sciortino being cited for weaving across marked traffic lines has prompted an investigation into the way the way sheriff’s deputies handled the incident.

Mahoning County Sheriff Jerry Greene said he requested the help of the Buckeye State Sheriff’s Association to provide an investigator from a different county to review how his deputies and supervisors dealt with the stop.

Greene said Sciortino is not under investigation, but that he wants to review his deputies’ actions.

Court records said Sciortino was pulled over early Sunday morning on Route 224 in Canfield Township. He is scheduled for a court appearance on the ticket on June 4.
