YATESVILLE — Pittston Area officials confirmed Wednesday the Luzerne County District Attorney’s Office has become involved in disciplinary proceedings against a school employee.

District Solicitor Sam Falcone, of Saporito, Saporito & Falcone, said he couldn’t give many details to the situation because of contractual reasons. He did confirm there is an investigation within the school.

“I would direct that to the (District Attorney),” Falcone said. “There were disciplinary actions taken against a professional employee.”

Luzerne County District Attorney Stefanie Salavantis, when reached on Wednesday, said she could not comment on the situation.
