Two more victims come forward over the weekend!
AP - TOMS RIVER, N.J. — A former yeshiva teacher has pleaded guilty to charges he sexually assaulted a 12-year-old boy he met while working as a counselor for a camp run by a religious school in Lakewood, N.J.
Rabbi Yosef Kolko on Monday entered the pleas on what was to have been the third day of his trial in Toms River, N.J., and his bail was revoked.
The abuse occurred from 2008 to early 2009, when the boy told his father, also a rabbi.
His father had initially wanted the case handled within Lakewood’s Orthodox Jewish community but decided in mid-2009 to take the case to authorities.
Kolko’s attorney says he is extremely remorseful and apologizes to the victim and his family.
He pleaded guilty to aggravated sexual assault, attempted aggravated sex assault, sexual assault and child endangerment.
