Judge drops most serious charge against Maria Zurita

Judge drops most serious charge against former teacher’s aide sex case

Goshen – A New Windsor woman, who was charged with having sex with a 16-year-old boy last year, has had the most serious charge against her dismissed as her trial continues.

Orange County Court Judge Nicholas DeRosa threw out the charge of rape in the third degree against Marie Zurita, 29, who was a teacher’s aide at the McQuade Children’s Services school in New Windsor when the incident allegedly occurred over the Memorial Day weekend last spring.

The sole remaining charge against Zurita is endangering the welfare of a child, a misdemeanor.


Note from Gag:
This poor kid must have been desperate to mess with her. Not that she isn't lovely for a 29 year old minimum wage worker.
