    Democrat & Chronicle: Ossining teacher's wedding day gives way to rape charge: Case involves student, 16; ex-bride has protection order (July 13 2013)

    With the wedding off, [John] Azabache’s only “I do” Friday came during his arraignment, when Justice Nancy Quinn Koba asked whether he understood the order of protection she issued to keep Azabache away from his not-to-be bride [Amanda Rae DeLuccia, White Plains, New York]. “I do, your honor,” he said, before his handcuffs were briefly unclasped so he could sign the document.

    Ossining village police were contacted Wednesday by the girl’s family, who said she had sexual relations with Azabache twice between March 1 and July 1. The alleged incidents occurred in the village but not during school hours or on any property of the Ossining school district, police said.

    KRMG: Teacher arrested for rape on day he was to be married: Former bride to be will testify against him (July 15 2013)

    John Azabache did say “I do” but it was to a judge instead of a preacher and it was in answer to a question about a protective order. On the day he was scheduled to be married Azabache was arrested for allegedly raping a 16 year old who had been one of his students. The protective order wasn’t on behalf of the student but instead had to do with the woman he was supposed to marry ... The woman who was set to marry Azabache will see him again in front of an Ossining, New York judge. She’ll be a witness for the prosecution when the trial takes place.

    Newser: On Day He Was to Marry, Teacher Charged With Rape (July 15 2013)

    John Azabache was supposed to be getting married Friday. Instead, he ended up getting arrested for allegedly raping one of his 16-year-old students. Needless to say, the wedding was called off, but the Journal News reports that Azabache did still utter the words "I do"—when he was asked by the judge whether he understood the order of protection keeping him away from the woman he was supposed to have married that very day. (Though he will likely see her again; the AP reports that she's on the prosecution's witness list.)
