YMCA camp counselor accused of sexual misconduct
A former YMCA camp counselor is accused of sexual misconduct involving a teen following an investigation of a separate incident at the camp.
Nicholas D. Maroney, who was a counselor at YMCA Genesee/Camp Hough on West Lake Road, Castile, was arrested Aug. 7 for allegedly having sexual relations with a 16-year-old female camper.
On Aug. 3, the 20-year-old Perry man was accused of returning to the camp intoxicated, entering the wrong cabin and seen exiting the occupied bunk bed of a 7-year-old female camper in the morning.
At the time of the initial charge, there was no report of sexual contact with the child.
During the July 29 investigation, New York State Troopers and the Bureau of Criminal Investigation interviewed multiple campers and staff and determined that Maroney allegedly had sexual relations with the 16-year-old.
In addition to the previous charge of endangering the welfare of a child, he is also charged with sexual misconduct, a Class A misdemeanor.
State Police say they do not believe there are any other victims at this time.
He was jailed in the Wyoming County Jail on the endangerment charge and arrested and arraigned in the Town of Perry Court Monday.
