Supervisor charged for teens fundraising in cold
A New York Youth Club representative with legal troubles faces new charges after Cedarhurst residents reported teenagers canvassing for charity in freezing weather.
Residents notified police Tuesday evening that teens between 13 and 15 years old were out working without coats or supervision in the frigid cold. Their supervisor, 25-year-old Adam Maxwell, was arrested and charged with three counts of child endangerment.
Police say Maxwell has a pending DWI case. He also allegedly has a history of driving in uninsured vehicles without inspections.
Another New York Youth Club supervisor was arrested on similar charges last February.
