Monsey man gets jail, probation for sex abuse
LoHud - August 26, 2011
Grossman initially was charged with second-degree course of sexual conduct, a felony, and endangering the welfare of a child, a misdemeanor, in addition to the sexual abuse charge.
County Court Judge William A. Kelly ordered Grossman to serve 10 years' probation following his release from jail, officials said.
Grossman also was ordered to register with the state as a sex offender. The level at which he is to register will likely be determined during a Nov. 17 court hearing, officials said.
There are three levels of sex offenders in New York. A Level 1 offender is considered at low risk to repeat his crime; a Level 2 offender is considered at medium risk; and a Level 3 in considered at high risk. Only those assigned a Level 2 or Level 3 appear on the state's Sex Offender Registry website.
Reached by telephone Thursday, Kenneth Gribetz, Grossman's attorney, took no issue with Kelly's ruling.
"It's a tragic case," Gribetz said. "We feel the District Attorney's Office and Judge Kelly acted in a fair and just fashion."
