tuckahoe woman indicted for sexual assault

alleging a relationship with her husband

 

 

 

Westchester County District Attorney Janet DiFiore announced that Giovanna Osorio

(DOB 08/28/71) of 269 Columbus Avenue, Tuckahoe, New York was arraigned today on a

five count indictment charging her with:

 

·         two counts of Burglary in the Second Degree, class “C” Violent Felonies,

·         one count of Aggravated Sexual Abuse in the Second Degree, a class “C” Felony,

·         one count of Assault in the Second Degree, a class “D” Violent Felony,

·         one count of Endangering the Welfare of a Child, a class “A” Misdemeanor.

 

On August 4, 2012, in the early morning hours, the defendant broke in to the victim’s home in Rye Brook, New York, proceeded to the victim’s bedroom and began violently attacking the woman.

 

The defendant bit the victim on the face and sexually assaulted her.

 

The defendant thought her husband, a contractor who had done previously work at the home, was in the midst of a relationship with the victim.

 

Additionally, the victim’s four year old son was present during the attack.

 

The defendant fled and the victim called police.

 

Rye Brook police responded to the home and located Osorio nearby.

 

She was taken into custody at the scene.

 

Following the arraignment, District Attorney Janet DiFiore said, “Jealously, rage and loss of complete control over an alleged relationship are no excuse to break into someone’s home in the middle of the night and in an attempt to humiliate the victim, sexually abuse them. And for the entire assault to be witnessed by the victim’s 4 year old son, is even more disturbing.”

 

The defendant remains free on $25,000 bail.

 

The defendant’s next court appearance is January 15, 2013.

 

Osorio faces a maximum sentence of 15 years in state prison on the top counts of the indictment.

 

Assistant District Attorney Wendy Parra of the Sex Crimes Bureau is prosecuting the case.
