A woman from Tuckahoe, New York has been accused of sexually assaulting a woman she claimed was her husband’s mistress.
40-year-old Giovana Osorio said on Wednesday that she hit the woman but had not sexually assaulted her.
Osorio claimed her husband had been seeing the woman for five years.
Osorio made the comments in Spanish to an Univision 41 reporter while leaving Rye Town Court, where she appeared briefly and had her case adjourned until Tuesday. The reporter translated what Osorio said.
Osorio’s case was adjourned at the request of her lawyer, Arthur Del Negro, when Osorio appeared in court Wednesday morning.
Del Negro said outside court that Osorio has never been arrested and has a job.
“She has never been in trouble in her life,” Del Negro told The Journal News/LoHud.com.
Osorio, in search of her husband, is accused of sneaking into the woman’s bedroom about 3:30 a.m. Saturday and sexually assaulting her in front of the woman’s 4-year-old child, police said. The victim lives in Rye Brook.
She is charged with second-degree burglary and two counts of second-degree assault, both felonies and is being held in the Westchester County jail on $25,000 cash bail or $250,000 bond.
She was put back into a police car after the court appearance.
