Detectives from the Lyon County Sheriff’s Office Major Crimes Division, along with the assistance of Homeland Security Investigations and the Northern Nevada Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force (comprised of members of the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office and Sparks Police Department), began an investigation earlier this week into the vice principal of Yerington Intermediate School, 54-year-old Scott Darrington of Yerington, according to a news release.
