BETHLEHEM — The Bethlehem Police Department arrested a 31-year-old Schenectady woman on Tuesday, March 19 after a six-month investigation relating to a complaint of inappropriate conduct with a disabled person.
A Capital District DDSO group home, a place for physically and mentally disabled people in Delmar where arrestee Maryam N. Mair worked, reported possible inappropriate care of a consumer at the home. As Bethlehem police then conducted a joint investigation with New York State Justice Center, a second incident of inappropriate care and treatment of a second consumer at the same home earlier in 2018 came into light.
It was discovered that Mair did mistreat a physically disabled person and falsified records to pretend it did not happen.
Mair was arraigned at the Bethlehem Town Court and charged with two felony counts of endangering the welfare of an incompetent or physically disabled person, and one felony count of falsifying business records. She was released under the supervision of probation and her case was waived up to Albany County Court.
Anyone with more information related to this case is encouraged to contact Bethlehem police at 518-439-9973.
