INDIAN LAKE, N.Y. (AP) - State police say a northern New York school janitor accused of having a sexual relationship with a female student has been arrested on a rape charge.
They say 26-year-old Robert Naubereit of Indian Lake was charged with third-degree rape after an investigation that started when the student revealed the relationship and it was reported by the school principal.
Troopers say meetings between Naubereit and the student while he was working after school hours at the Indian Lake Central School led to a sexual relationship.
Naubereit was arraigned in Indian Lake Town Court. He was being held Thursday at the Hamilton County jail. A message left for his lawyer wasn't initially returned Thursday evening.
Indian Lake is 81 miles northwest of Albany.
