Spring Valley Man Accused of Rape

A 52- year old Spring Valley man was arrested on October 3rd for allegedly raping a 34- year old woman in his home. The woman reported the attack, leading police to investigate the man, Eddy Pageot, who, according to the Journal News, is a cousin of Deputy Mayor of Spring Valley, Joseph Desmaret. Police charged Pageot with first- degree rape by forcible compulsion. According to Pageot’s lawyer, Kenneth Gribetz, the victim falsely accused his client after the two got into a dispute. He also stated that the two were in a close relationship prior to the reported attack. Pageot was released on $12,500 bail and will appear in court later today to face charges of first- degree rape.
