Background
Moscoso Arias, a Fox Lane Middle School bus driver, was arrested in May by Westchester County Police in Mount Kisco after they received information that Arias was going to meet with a victim under 13 years of age for a sexual encounter in the Mount Kisco shoppers’ parking lot. He had met the victim on one earlier occasion where he fondled the victim. The encounter was inside his vehicle.

Police staked out the parking lot after they notified the victim’s family. Moscoso Arias showed up at the appointed time but was met by police and arrested. The child was not present at the time. The charges were based on an earlier incident and text messages to the victim.

Assistant District Attorney Christine Hatfield, Deputy Chief of the Special Prosecutions Division Child Abuse/Elder Abuse Bureau, prosecuted the case.
