SCHOOL AIDE IS BUSTED AFTER SEX-ABUSE CLAIM
Robert Smith, a 33 year old Queens school safety officer, attempted to rape a 14 year old freshman girl in a creepy, six-week ordeal that began with a kiss in a school stairwell. The abuse began May 1 when Smith, of Brooklyn, and the teen kissed at Springfield Gardens High School. The two later ventured into a basement room, where the uniformed officer sexually molested the girl on two occasions. On June 13, the last encounter, he allegedly drove her around the block from the school where he attempted to have sex with her in his car. Smith is awaiting arraignment on attempted rape, criminal sex act and sexual abuse charges.
