|Former Elite High School principal Emanuel Yegutkin could spend the rest of his life in prison for repeatedly sexually abusing three young boys.|
A former principal at a Jewish High School in Brooklyn could potentially spend the rest of his life in prison after getting convicted yesterday on 75 counts of sex-with-a-kid-related crimes.
The jury in the case against Emanuel Yegutkin found that the former principal at Elite High School in Bensonhurst repeatedly sexually abused three young boys over a 10-year period, starting in 1996.
None of 33-year-old Yegutkin's victims were students at the school where he was employed until his 2009 arrest -- authorities say he met the boys after befriending their father and getting close with their family.
Yegutkin was frequently invited to the family's Friday night shabbat dinners, where he had access to the three brothers.
"He would touch me under the table," one of the boys testified at trial. "I wasn't taught about sexuality, so I wasn't sure if it was right or wrong."
