A Connecticut rabbi who was convicted of sexually abusing a teenage boy who attended a school the rabbi founded has been sentenced and will serve 12 years in prison.
In September, a jury convicted 79-year-old Daniel Greer of four counts of risk of injury to a minor. Each count could have carried up to 20 years in prison. The sentence handed down is for 20 years, suspended after 12, according to court officials.
The man was awarded $15 million in a civil lawsuit against Greer, who is appealing.
