New York State Police troopers have arrested a behavioral therapist in Warwick that is accused of inappropriately touching a teenager in his care.

State Police in Montgomery announced on Friday that James Weatherstone, 57, had been arrested after troopers received a complaint about a 16-year-old who was being inappropriately touched by the therapist.

According to police, Weatherstone works as an independent contractor as a family support services clinician. Following the complaint, they launched an investigation that determined Weatherstone “acted inappropriately when providing therapy to the 16-year-old,” which resulted in his arrest.

Weatherstone has been charged with misdemeanor counts of forcible touching and endangering the welfare of a child. He was released on his own recognizance and is due back in Town of Cornwall Court on Wednesday, Feb. 8.
