Grand jury indicts former Liberty superintendent
WARREN — A special report of the Trumbull County grand jury this morning charged a former superintendent of the Liberty Local School District with 11 counts involving interception of wire, oral or electronic communications and interfering with civil rights.
Joseph S. Nohra Jr., 49, of Topper Hill Drive, Hubbard, was named in direct indictments on six counts of interception of wire oral or electronic communications and interfering with civil rights. The first charges are fourth-degree felonies and the second batch are first-degree misdemeanors.
