Camp counselor arrested again, charged with sex crime

CASTILE, N.Y. (WIVB) — A camp counselor in Wyoming County has been charged with Sexual Misconduct.

Previously, New York State Police say Nicholas Maroney, 20, came back to YMCA Genesee/Camp Hough drunk and went to sleep in the wrong cabin.

Troopers say Maroney was seen leaving the occupied bunk bed of a 7-year-old girl in the morning.

After this, he was arrested and jailed in Wyoming County without bail.

The new Sexual Misconduct charge against Maroney stems from information Troopers say they learned while investigating.

They say he had sexual relations with a 16-year-old female camper. Maroney has not been charged with rape since he is under 21 years old.

Camp Hough released a statement about the incident, stating that the new information about Maroney is “disturbing and goes against everything our camp stands for”.

Maroney’s employment with the camp had already been terminated prior to the new information. The camp is also conducting their own internal investigation.

State Police say their investigation into the case is now closed.

Maroney was arraigned in Town of Perry Court.
