Broome Developmental Employee Charged with Rape
A man who was employed by Broome Developmental Center faces felony charges for allegedly committing rape while impersonating a social worker.
Authorities say 64-year-old Martin Kelley was arrested by New York State Police on Monday.
Investigators say Kelley is accused of wrongfully presenting himself as a social worker to engage in sexual intercourse with someone without that person's consent. He also allegedly offered money in exchange for sexual favors.
Kelley was charged with felony counts of third-degree rape and third-degree intimidating a witness. He also was charged with misdemeanor counts of official misconduct and second-degree criminal impersonation.
The arrest was made as part of an on-going investigation by state police and the Broome County District Attorney's Office.
New York state closed the Broome Developmental Center facility in the Town of Dickinson in March 2016.
A news release from the district attorney's office did not indicate when or where the alleged offenses occurred.
