Accused , Briarcliff Manor school board member Sal Maglietta is now scheduled for trial this May in Lewisboro.
Maglietta January 6 in on a second-degree harassment charge , a fellow school board member. She lodged the complaint against Maglietta two days after last year’s school board election, saying he had pushed her arm and shoulder at on the evening of May 17, 2011.
Maglietta, 57, appeared Monday in Lewisboro Town Court on the charge, which is a violation but not a crime. The case was referred to that northern Westchester jurisdiction after Maglietta asked Village Court Justice Fred Weinstein in January , citing a potential conflict of interest.
In 2005, when an open vote sponsored by the People's Caucus of Briarcliff Manor renominated Weinstein, Ranno was a member of the Caucus’ executive committee. She has since stepped down. In Lewisboro Monday, Maglietta listened quietly as Judge Sue Simon set trial for 10 a.m. Wednesday, May 30.
Maglietta remains bound by a temporary order of protection, which runs through May and directs him to stay away from Ranno and avoid any communication. Both continue to serve on the school board.
