    Norman Seabrook, president of the Corrections Officers Union, leads 30 correction officers out of Bronx Supreme Court after attending a hearing where Raleek Young was indicted for attempted rape on Tuesday.

    Dozens of city correction officers kept up their full-court press on the Bronx court system Tuesday as the hulking inmate who tried to rape a female guard on Rikers Island was arraigned on his indictment for the heinous crime.

    “We’re here to support our sister, and make sure this doesn’t happen again,” said one female officer, who gave her name as M. Henry and works in the same jail dormitory where video captured the Feb. 28 attack by Raleek Young.

    Raleek Young has pleaded not guilty to charges that include attempted rape.

    Raleek Young has pleaded not guilty to charges that include attempted rape.
    “We’re mothers, we’re sisters, we’re grandmothers,” she added. “We’re not just officers. We take off our blues and put on regular clothes, just like you.”

    The 5-foot-9, 290-pound Young, clad in an orange prison jumpsuit, mumbled “not guilty” to all charges, including an attempted rape rap that could keep him locked up for 15 years. He’s due back in court in July.

    The head of the Correction Officers’ Benevolent Association said he’d keep busing packs of supporters to Bronx Supreme Court until justice was served.

    “When you don’t show concern, sometimes people take things for granted,” said union boss Norman Seabrook.
