Former Brooklyn math tutor gets just three years’ probation in sexual assault of his 6-year-old pupil Tweet email

A former Brooklyn math tutor busted for sexually assaulting a 6-year-old student will only spend three years on probation - in a sweetheart sentencing on Wednesday.

Moshe Friedman, 31, admitted in December to violating the little boy multiple times between September 2014 and June 2015 when he was supposed to be helping him with his homework.

Friedman, was originally charged with first-degree felony sexual conduct against a child — but pleaded guilty to endangering the welfare of a child, a misdemeanor..[...]

“The victim’s family were adamant about not allowing their child to testify and they approved of the plea,” according to a law enforcement source.

Friedman, who was represented by lawyer Arthur Aidala, has several conditions to the plea bargain — including not having to register as a sex offender.[...]

Included in Friedman’s plea agreement, he must serve three years probation surrender his Department of Education teaching license, never contact the victim or be around anyone under the age of 18, not speak to other sex offenders, not watch pornography, no calls to phone sex services and must not use the computer to view sexual material.

“Thank you, your honor,” Friedman told Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice Miriam Cyrulnik on Wednesday.

If Friedman violates the terms of his agreement, he faces up to a year in jail.[...]


  1. Whose pulling the strings?

  2. No strings. Family refused to let child testify so this was the deal that he agreed to confess.

  3. "Moshe Friedman, 31, admitted in December to violating the little boy multiple times"
    That's false. He never admitted to violating the child, even once.

  4. If he would face new charges in the future, once this kid is older and emotionally prepared to testify, would this kid be allowed to testify? How does such a plea deal work - is it like OJ Simpson's double jeopardy law, or can he still testify?

    If he can still testify, it will hopefully serve as a deterrent.

  5. What is the basis to assume he's guilty of anything more than what he was convicted for? I see none to take away his natural presumption of innocence.

  6. & how does the Judge plan to monitor all of his probations?

  7. A one hundred percent. This should serve as a deterrent not to bring frivolous charges to being with.

  8. The probation office and their wonderful public servants will make sure his life is miserable enough. Don't worry.
