ILION, N.Y. -- A former teacher's assistant in Ilion was found not guilty on all charges after a bench trial in Ilion Village Court.
Dominick “Enzo” LoRe, of Frankfort, was charged with forcible touching and endangering the welfare of a child when a 15-year-old student accused him of touching her buttocks in the school cafeteria at Pathways Academy.
He was terminated from his position based on the charges filed.
Monday in court, he was found not guilty based on conflicting stories from a person who initially said they witnessed the incident, then recounted a different story. And also based on the inconsistency of 'where' the alleged touching first occurred.
He was found not guilty on all charges.
LoRe's attorney, Frank Madia, says his client and his family are trying to recover normalcy after a trying year.
