Rabbi Charged With Sexual Assault On A Child

Massachusetts: The Suffolk County district attorney says a rabbi who once taught at a Boston-area school faces another child assault charge.

Authorities said Sunday that Stanley Z. Levitt was charged with indecent assault and battery on a child. The 64-year-old Levitt is expected to be arraigned Wednesday in Suffolk Superior Court

Levitt was arraigned last year on four counts of indecent assault and battery on a child. Prosecutors say he assaulted two boys about 11 years old who attended the Maimonides School in Brookline where he taught between 1974 and 1977.

In one case, Levitt entered a plea of no contest to indecent assault and corrupting a minor -- both classified as misdemeanors. He was sentenced in 2004 in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas to five years probation. Another case went to trial and resulted in a not guilty verdict. Charges were withdrawn in the third case.
