A Queens yeshiva student pleaded guilty Wednesday to fondling two young girls he tutored in their homes.

Hillel Selznick, 25, will serve six months in jail and 10 years probation as part of a plea deal with Queens prosecutors.

Cops say Selznick, a student at a Flushing rabbinical school, fondled the 8-year-old girls on several occasions between October 2010 and January 2011.

Selznick lived at the school while pursuing his doctorate and tutored youngsters during his free time.

Parents of young girls sexually assaulted by Yeshiva tutor lash out at perv
By Christina Carrega
New York Post - April 17, 2012

The parents of two young girls who were sexually assaulted by their religious tutor, lashed out this morning at the “wolf in sheep’s clothing” they allowed in their homes as a judge tossed the pervert in jail.

Yeshiva student Hillel Selznick, 25, of Flushing, admitted to Queens Supreme Court Justice Richard Buchter that he inappropriately touched the two fourth graders over the course of a year during private religious lessons inside their Kew Gardens Hills homes.

“Hillel is indeed the worst type of predator,” said the angry mother of one of the victims, “someone who gains a parent’s trust only to do the most wicked and vile things to their innocent children.”

The woman cried as she read her impact statement to the creep who was recommended by rabbis and other parents. She was fooled by his “boyish looks and religious costumes” and regrettably entrusted her four children to him for tutoring. 

Hillel’s acts were revealed when one of the 8-year-old girls bravely told her mother that she was being molested by the trusted tutor.

“My daughter was living a private hell thanks to Hillel, years of abuse, under my own roof, while I was there!” the mother said through tears. “I probably never would have known. Hillel met his match when my friend’s daughter spoke out with lion-like courage.”

Judge Buchter, before sentencing Selznick to six months in jail, said: “He betrayed their trust in the most disgusting way, these children have been traumatized.”

“He’s a wolf in sheep’s clothing,” said the judge who also ordered the perv to complete a sex offender program, register as a sex offender and pay $1,000 in fines.

“The punishment in this world will only be child’s play compared to what awaits you in the next world,” said the victim's mom.

The now 10-year-old girls were spared from reliving those terrifying moments at a trial when Selznick pleaded guilty to two-counts of sexual conduct against a child.

The Orthodox Jewish man, who had been facing up to seven years in prison, held his head down in shame and declined to speak in his own defense before he was hauled away to jail, where he will be placed in protective custody.
