A former NYPD lieutenant accused of raping and sexually assaulting two underage girls he knew is headed for trial in April.

Judge Williams DeProspo set April 4 for the start of jury selection for Nicholas McAteer, 46, of Greenwood Lake, who faces an 82-count indictment in Orange County Court. He was arrested in August and indicted in October 2017.

McAteer, who is free on $25,000 bail, is accused of raping one victim in 2003 and 2007 and then groped her in 2016. He's also accused of sexually assaulting another victim several times between 2008 and 2013.

A family source told Westchester News12 the girls, were 12 and 13 when the abuse began. The abuse allegedly took place in McAteer's home while his wife was sleeping and in his patrol car, while he worked for an NYPD sex crimes unit.
