BENCH WARRANT - MASSENA - Plattsburgh City Police picked up Justin W. Kulengosky, 21, of 1 College Ave., Apt. 1, Plattsburgh, on Friday on a bench warrant issued by the Massena Village Court in February after he failed to appear as directed on an endangering the welfare of a child count. Kulengosky was turned over to Massena Village Police. He was arraigned by Massena Village Justice Eric J. Gustafson and sent to the St. Lawrence County Correctional Facility with bail set at $1,000.
He allegedly picked up a 16-year-old female at Massena Central High School at 7:15 a.m. Nov. 4, 2011 and took her to his mothers residence on Liberty Avenue for the day.
Police allege Kulengosky knew the female was skipping school while she was at his residence. The girls parents were not aware of their daughters plan, according to court documents.
Kulengosky, in a statement he provided to police, said he was dating the 16-year-old and suggested she had asked him on the evening of Nov. 3, 2011 to pick her up the next morning.
I told her I didnt want to. She called me again about 6:30 a.m. on the 4th, and she asked me again. She continued to ask me so I said yes, he noted.
Kulengosky said the 16-year-old got off the bus, walked to his car and they spent the day at his mothers house with his mother and sister at the residence.
We had been dating for a couple of months and broke it off. We started dating again about four days prior to this incident, he said, noting he had been led to believe her parents were okay with their relationship. He noted he later learned that was not the case.
