A village man is charged with 13 felonies and six misdemeanors that all stem from a string of domestic incidents that culminated with him allegedly breaking into a girl’s home and assaulting and raping her.
Zachary W. Currier, 19, of 651 Geyser Road was indicted on the following felony charges Wednesday: first-degree rape, three counts of second-degree burglary, first-degree sexual abuse and eight counts of first-degree criminal contempt. Currier is also charged with fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon, second-degree menacing, third-degree attempted assault and two counts of second-degree criminal contempt, misdemeanors.
Prosecutors say Currier was arrested repeatedly for violating orders of protection barring him from contact with the victim, both in person and via text messages. He was released on bail each time, and each time he allegedly continued to harass the victim.
Currier was arrested by Saratoga Springs police May 10, 2012. At that time, police said he broke into the girl’s Saratoga Springs home, pointed a gun at her head and threatened to kidnap her. Police said Currier left the home after another resident walked in on the incident and then turned himself into police hours later.
On July 16, prosecutors said, Currier again violated an order of protection by breaking into the victim’s home and assaulting and raping her. Currier is currently out of jail; he posted $30,000 cash bail.
