John Azabache did say “I do” but it was to a judge instead of a preacher and it was in answer to a question about a protective order.
On the day he was scheduled to be married Azabache was arrested for allegedly raping a 16 year old who had been one of his students.
The protective order wasn’t on behalf of the student but instead had to do with the woman he was supposed to marry.
The 92 year old grandmother of the woman who was to marry Azabache summed it up like this. "He always seemed like a nice guy. You men are all alike. You stink. I hope they send him to jail forever."
Azabache has pleaded not guilty while his attorney spins it by saying there was no “forcible compulsion” but was "an alleged incident with a minor, someone who is just under 17 years old."
The woman who was set to marry Azabache will see him again in front of an Ossining, New York judge. She’ll be a witness for the prosecution when the trial takes place.
