NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut rabbi accused of repeatedly raping and molesting a teenage boy is set to make his first court appearance since being arrested last month.
Rabbi Daniel Greer is scheduled to be arraigned Monday in New Haven Superior Court on felony charges of second-degree sexual assault and risk of injury to a minor.
His lawyer says he will plead not guilty, but it’s not clear if he will enter pleas Monday.
He is accused of assaulting the boy hundreds of times during this time period.
Greer was a founder and principal of the school, which was established in 1977.
A federal jury in May awarded $15 million in damages to the now-former student in his lawsuit against Greer and the school.
