Former BOCES Teacher’s Aide Pleads Not Guilty to Gun Charge

A 24 year-old former teacher’s aide at the Rockland BOCES Jesse Kaplan school in West Nyack pleaded not guilty to a felony weapon possession charge in Clarkstown court yesterday. Gillian Jeffords of Warwick was arrested in March after a school staff member discovered her handbag in a classroom closet with what was determined to be a Ruger 9mm handgun. The school had to be put on lockdown until the gun was secured by the school’s resource officer. She is due back in court in July.
