Teacher's aide, field hockey coach arrested in Schenectady child sex abuse case

SCHENECTADY, NY – A teacher's aide from a Schenectady special education school was arrested Monday and accused of having sex with a 15-year-old student a year ago, police and prosecutors said.

Alexandra Culhane, 24, of Scotia is charged with felony rape and felony criminal sex act.

Culhane allegedly had oral sex and intercourse with a 15-year-old male student in early April 2016 in Schenectady's Central Park, Schenectady County Assistant District Attorney John Carson said Tuesday.

The defendant worked at The School at Northeast, a special education school in Schenectady that serves children from grades 6 to 12. The school is run by Northern Rivers Family of Services, a child and family services conglomerate with offices 12 eastern New York counties. Northern Rivers is licensed by the state Education Department.

Staff reported Culhane's alleged behavior to city police in 2016, Carson said. The district attorney's office, the Schenectady Police Department and the state Justice Center for the Protection of People with Special Needs investigated the case.

The school removed Culhane from her duties when the investigation began and then fired her in February, Northern Rivers spokesman Eugene White said Tuesday. Culhane had worked for the company for about a year.

"We constantly monitor and supervise all of our facilities," White said. "If something happens, we want to uncover it immediately and take corrective action. ... Transparency and accountability are vitally important."

Culhane was also the junior varsity field hockey coach for the Scotia-Glenville High School in fall 2015 and fall 2016, district spokesman Bob Hanlon said Tuesday.

She is not a current Scotia-Glenville School District employee, since her position is seasonal and requires yearly appointment, Hanlon said. He added that the district never had concerns or complaints about her coaching.

Montgomery Co. teacher convicted of child sex abuse
Victim reacted to child sex abuse lesson
By Kate Ryan

WASHINGTON — A veteran Montgomery County, Maryland teacher has been convicted of nine counts of sexual abuse.

Fifty-year-old John Vigna, of Silver Spring, Maryland, taught at Cloverly Elementary School for more than 20 years, and it was a 2016 class on “body safety” that triggered the investigation that led to his arrest and conviction, said Montgomery County State’s Attorney John McCarthy.

McCarthy says that during the February 2016 class — in which children are taught how to identify sexual abuse — teachers noted the physical reaction of one student.

“The person teaching the body safety class watched the girl begin to shrink down, and put her head on the desk,” McCarthy said, adding the instructors talked to the student. “They found out and confirmed their own suspicions that she had been inappropriately touched.”

The investigation led police to ask any potential victims to come forward.

There were five victims named in the 15-count indictment identifying Vigna. One of the victims who came forward is now in her 20s and she told prosecutors she was inappropriately touched by Vigna as far back as 2001.

McCarthy says the veteran teacher was found guilty on nine counts involving four victims.

In one case, a third-grader reported that Vigna would put her on his lap, with his hands on her hips and move her back and forth. When she tried to get off his lap, he would resist.

The verdict came early Saturday morning.

McCarthy says that’s unusual, but the deliberations began late Friday afternoon, and that the jury in the case indicated that they wanted to continue to work into Friday night.

Vigna faces a maximum sentence of 150 years, but McCarthy says the Maryland sentencing guidelines call for between 20 and 40 years in prison.

McCarthy says in working on child abuse cases, “Most of the kids will tell you, they always thought what was happening was weird, but they didn’t know it was wrong.”
