Former Brookline Rabbi Faces Additional Sexual Assault Charges
Stanley Levitt accused of assaulting three young boys while teaching at Maimonides in the 1970s.
Prosecutors say a third victim has come forward with allegations of sexual abuse at the hands of Stanley Levitt, a 64-year-old rabbi who taught in Brookline in the 1970s.
Levitt already was already facing four charges of indecent assault and battery on a child stemming from alleged attacks on two separate victims in the mid 1970s. He is expected to be arraigned on the fifth charge in Suffolk Superior Court on June 30.
The latest victim reportedly came forward after reading media reports about Levitt's indictment on sexual assault charges late last year. Prosecutors say the victim was a sixth grader at the Maimonides School, where Levitt was briefly employed, when the attack occurred.
Levitt was indicted on the initial charges last year. In one case, prosecutes say Levitt assaulted an 11-year-old boy while he was being treated at Children's Hospital in Boston. The three other incidents allegedly occurred while a male student, also 11, was visiting Levitt's Chiswick Road home for three nights in 1975.
Prosecuters said there is no evidence that any of the alleged abuse occured on Maimonides school property.
