Based upon the victim’s allegations, Sheriff’s investigators obtained and executed a search warrant for Mr. Moloney’s home on October 12th. The next day, Mr. Moloney surrendered himself at the Sheriff’s Office, accompanied by his attorney. He was arrested and arraigned before Town of Carmel Justice Joseph Spofford, who set bail in the amount of $40,000.00, which was posted to secure his release.
The defendant is facing two counts of sexual abuse in the first degree and one count of criminal sexual act in the first degree. Those offenses are class B felonies, which are punishable by up to 25 years’ imprisonment upon conviction.

The arrest occurred at about 11:30 PM on October 13th, after sheriff’s deputies pulled over the car Mr. Garcia was driving along Route 6N in Mahopac for traffic infractions. During the vehicle stop, deputies determined that Mr. Garcia was driving outside the restrictions of a conditional license, stemming from a prior conviction earlier this year for driving while impaired by alcohol.
Upon further investigation, deputies found that Mr. Garcia was allegedly in possession of 15 plastic bags containing cocaine and one plastic bag containing a quantity of the synthetic drug MDMA (also known as “ecstasy”). In addition, he was allegedly found to have a loaded .380 caliber semi-automatic pistol within the vehicle.
