Gina Rango, former Youngstown State University assistant softball coach, was taken into custody by the Adult Parole Authority and charged with violating probation on Monday.

In February, Rango, 28, of Woodworth Road in North Lima, pleaded guilty to four counts of felony drug trafficking charges.

As part of her sentencing agreement, Rango was ordered to counsel children about the dangers of drugs and to complete 100 hours of community service.

On Wednesday, Judge Jim Evans of the Mahoning County Court of Common Pleas granted a continuance. 

No additional hearings are scheduled yet.
