Bronx Man Linked to Nyack College Pleads Guilty in South Nyack Court

ksdskSOUTH NYACK – A Bronx man, with Rockland County ties, was brought to Rockland County on Monday for arraignment in South Nyack Village Court on charges in connection with a 2014 incident at Nyack College.

South Nyack-Grand View Police said Jamel Dean, 39, was officially charged with second-degree criminal trespassing and third-degree criminal trespassing, both misdemeanors, in connection with a Sept. 23 incident at the college campus in South Nyack.

Police Chief Brent P. Newbury said Dean was identified after an investigation of reports of a suspicious person at the college. Newbury said video from a surveillance system showed Dean in several Nyack College buildings in non-public areas.

Newbury said Dean that tips from the public helped lead to the identification of Dean, who was arrested in October by state Division of Parole. Dean was brought to South Nyack on Monday from a state prison, where he is being held on an unrelated charge. Dean pleaded guilty to trespassing as a violation and was sentenced to time already served.
