Peekskill High School
The parents of a former Peekskill High School student are suing the school district, alleging a school psychologist crossed the line when he helped the girl acquire birth control.
Details of the threat have not been disclosed, but superintendent James Willis said it has been addressed by the Peekskill Police Department.
Jeffrey Deskovic, who was freed in 2006 after 16 years in prison, received his diploma from John Jay College of Criminal Justice at a graduation ceremony on Tuesday.
Allison Risoli was arraigned Monday on two counts of offering a false instrument for filing in the first degree, prosecutors said.
In a letter, Willis said in most cases the students got credit for a “work experience” course that was dropped years ago.
Convicted and imprisoned of a rape and murder he didn’t commit, Jeffrey Deskovic is using $1.5 million from his $6.5 million settlement award from Westchester County to start his own foundation help others who were in his situation.
