Danielle Moore, 42, of St. Albans was arrested last Thursday and charged in State Supreme Court in Kew Gardens with seducing a 14-year-old boy twice between October 2003 and last month, Brown said.
"According to the charges, the defendant engaged in sexual relations on two occasions with a 14-year-old boy inside her residence," Brown said in a statement. "The defendant is alleged to have taken advantage of her friendship with the victim's family, to have used the victim for her own gratification and to have endangered his moral welfare."
Moore, a parole officer with the New York State Division of Parole, allegedly engaged in sexual intercourse with the boy, whose family is friendly with Moore, Brown said. The two incidents took place between Oct. 1, 2003 and Feb. 29 inside Moore's St. Albans home, the district attorney said. Moore's address was not released.
The teenage boy, who was not identified by authorities, told another friend of the family about the alleged incidents after the second occasion, Brown said. The friend alerted police, prompting an investigation into Moore's alleged conduct, the district attorney said.
Moore was arrested last Thursday and charged with second-degree rape and endangering the welfare of a child, Brown said. She faces up to seven years in prison if convicted of the crimes.
Moore was arraigned in State Supreme Court in Kew Gardens last Thursday before Judge Steven Paynter, who set her bail at $5,000, Brown said. Moore was scheduled to return to court March 29.
