OSSINING, N.Y. -- A 31-year-old Port Chester man who taught math at Ossining High School was arrested and charged with raping a 16-year-old female student Friday, The Journal News reported.

John M. Azabache was supposed to be getting married to White Plains resident Amanda Rae DeLuccia, The Journal News reported. The wedding was apparently called off Thursday.

Ossining police were notified Wednesday by the student's family that she had sex twice with Azabache between March and July in the village, but not on school property or during school hours, The Journal News said.

Azabache pleaded not guilty during his arraignment on Friday. Bail was set at $50,000, and the judge issued several orders of protection against Azabache.

In a letter to the district, Ossining Superintendent Raymond Sanchez said Azabache had administratively reassigned and barred from school grounds while the legal process goes forward.

"We are extremely disturbed by these allegations, as i am sure all of you are, and we are cooperating with law enforcement officials in their investigation of the matter," Sanchez wrote.

31 yr. old H. Sch. Math teachers should NOT be par-taking in sex in any way describable with a 16 yr. old person.. period..Lock him up..castrate him...set him free in 10 yrs. period!!! This is called "True Crime Deterence" we need it desperately now..to save decent society...

Hmm, is there something you should be telling your spouse to be as well kids…?

I DONT THINK THE 16 YR OLD SAID HE RAPED HER. ITS CATAGORIZED AS RAPE BC SHES 16.

AND WORD AROUND TOWN IS MS. DELUCCIA WAS ALSO UNDERAGED WHEN A MID 20 YR OLD AZABACHE WAS DATING HER AND HE PARENTS KNEW. CLEARLY HE HAS A BAD HABIT AND FANCIES YOUNG WOMEN.

he was screwing around so at least he got caught before he wrecked his bride to be's life.

was that deliberate that a 16 year old said rape when the guy she had sex with was getting married? It took her twice to decide it was rape .I HATE a real rapist but I have my doubts about this one other than she succeeded in destroying his life. a 16 almost 17 year old has raging hormones and what better catch then her teacher. He on the other hand was stupid to get involved .Just my opinion, don't attack

Agree - poor judgement on his behalf ! And if he was not getting married ? Would it have been 3-4-5 more times.
Bad situation ... Blessing for bride to be ... He has a problem
