DALLAS, Pa. — The former director of the Luzerne County's Children and Youth Services has been sentenced.
Joanne Van Saun of Dallas must serve 34 months probation, starting with nine months on house arrest.
Back in 2017, CYS had a backlog of more than 1,700 child abuse reports.
The state attorney general says Van Saun ordered those reports to be eliminated without even checking them.
Van Saun pleaded guilty to charges of obstruction and child endangerment in October.
