​Commonwealth v. Kyle Lynne Noro; Former Teacher Assistant, Softball Coach Sentenced to 3 Years in Prison for Online Crimes

Monday, November 03, 2014

Colin D. Stolle, Commonwealth’s Attorney for the city of Virginia Beach, announced that Kyle Noro, 27 years old, formerly of the 5000 block of Cypress Point Place in Virginia Beach, Virginia, was sentenced by Circuit Court Judge A. Bonwill Shockley for one count of Entice Minor to Perform in Porn, Age 15+, Offender 7+ Years.  Judge Shockley sentenced Noro to 15 years in the Department of Corrections with 12 years suspended leaving three (3) years to serve.  Three (3) years is the mandatory minimum sentence for Noro’s offense.  Upon her release, Noro must register as a sex offender, receive sex offender treatment, may not use the internet, and will be on intensive supervised probation. 

 Noro pled no contest on July 28, 2014, admitting that the evidence was sufficient to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.  Had this matter gone to trial, the Commonwealth’s evidence would have proven that in the years of 2012 and 2013, Kyle Noro was a teaching assistant at a high school in Virginia Beach and a travel softball coach.  Her role allowed her to come in contact with and mentor high school students and athletes.  Noro took advantage of this role by engaging in inappropriate relationships with minor students. 

 

Between August 1 and October 31, 2013, Noro was controlling at least twenty (20) false Facebook pages where she posed as various teenage boys.  Noro also purchased multiple prepaid cell phones to accompany the false identities. She befriended several teenage girls and began an online sexual relationship with a 17-year-old female. Posing as “Kevin”, Noro sent numerous sexually explicit photos to the female victim.  Noro further convinced the victim to send hundreds of sexually explicit photos in return.  Noro even arranged for gifts to be delivered to the victim from “Kevin”. Ultimately the victim learned that “Kevin” was Noro and reported the crimes to police.  Noro confessed to her involvement in the crime.

 

“This case is a perfect example of the online predators that can threaten our community,” Stolle said. “Parents should continue to talk to their children and teenagers about online safety and encourage teens not to share information with people they don’t personally know. My office will continue to vigorously prosecute those who threaten our children online.” 

 

The case was prosecuted by Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney Paul J. Powers. Please contact Macie Pridgen if additional information is desired.
