Three arrested in connection with sexual misconduct

A Whitehall couple was arrested after they allowed a minor to engage in sexual relations with an older teen.

Robert A. Valastro and Christine A. Valastro, both 45, of Montcalm Avenue, were each charged with one count of endangering the welfare of a child, a class A misdemeanor.

The Valastros allegedly knew and permitted Brittany M. Bishop, 18, of Franklin Avenue in Granville, to have sex with a youth in their home.

Bishop was charged with sexual misconduct, a class A misdemeanor because the youth was younger than the age of 16 at the time the reported contact was initiated.

All three were issued tickets to appear in court at a later date.

The investigation and arrests were handled by Whitehall Police Investigator Frank Hunt.
