Young arrested after allegedly found with juvenile

Joey Young was arrested late Sunday night on suspicion of violating a criminal protective order issued to keep him away from the juvenile he’s alleged to have had a sexual relationship with.
Young, the Del Norte Human Resources director and ex-cheerleading coach at Del Norte High School, was booked and released on charges of criminal contempt, annoying or molesting a child under 18 and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. 
Del Norte County Sheriff’s Cmdr. Bill Steven said that anyone arrested on those nonviolent misdemeanor charges would have been booked and released.
“He got the same treatment anybody would with those charges,” Steven said.

 Winding down the 101 from Crescent City to Klamath teetering above a thousand-foot drop down to the Pacific is just one example of the twice-daily demand put upon the school buses in Del Norte — an arduous task that makes it much more difficult to be a school bus amongst California’s rugged northwest terrain versus those cushy urban routes. Add in the thin budgets common to rural school districts and replacement of the hard-ridden transports can be an uphill climb for officials.
