NEW CITY, N.Y. (AP) - A suburban New York rabbi convicted of endangering a child has been sentenced to three years of probation with sex offender conditions.

The Journal News reports (https://lohud.us/1QbcsHW ) Rabbi Gabriel Bodenheimer of Monsey was sentenced Monday and banned from schools with children under 18.

A Rockland grand jury indicted Bodenheimer in 2014 of abusing a boy at the rabbi’s school office between 2009 and 2010. The 72-year-old had faced multiple sexual abuse counts involving the 7-year-old boy, but refused to plead guilty and denied touching the boy.

He pleaded guilty to the lesser charge.

Prosecutors dropped the more serious charges at the request of the family.

The rabbi has led the Yeshiva Bais Mikroh in Monsey for decades.
