Local News

WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – A protection order filed against Trumbull County Commissioner Niki Frenchko comes with a warning for police.

In the order filed on behalf of Paula Vivoda-Klotz, a warning is checked for law enforcement that reads “Warning to law enforcement: Respondent (who is Frenchko) has firearms access – proceed with caution.”

This caveat is a common legal procedure for anyone with a CCW permit or known to own a firearm.

The protection order guidelines are:

  • Frenchko cannot enter or interfere with Vivoda-Klotz’s work, residence, school, daycare or child care providers, including parking lots.
  • Frenchko must remain at least 25 feet away from Vivoda-Kklotz
  • No person can be encourgaged to do any act prohibited by the order
  • Frenchko is not permitted to possess, use or obtain any deadly weapon in the vicinity of Vivoda-Klotz

The civil stalking protection order was filed Jan. 7 following a workplace disagreement between Frenchko and Vivoda-Klotz and other employees.

Two other protection orders were also filed against Frenchko.

A hearing on all three protection orders is scheduled for Jan. 19.
