Moshe Friedman was charged in 2015 with first-degree felony sexual conduct against a child for violent and sadistic abuse of a 6 year old student. But in a shocking sweetheart deal, he was allowed to plead guilty to endangering the welfare of a child, a misdemeanor which carries no jail time.
According to his plea deal, 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, not call phone sex services and must not use the computer to view sexual material.
According to current information received by JCW, Friedman regularly davens in the Boston Shul at 1569 47th street on shabbosim and lives in close proximity to the shul.
