A Brooklyn math tutor charged with repeatedly violating a six-year-old student is expected to go to trial in the fall.
Moshe Friedman was hired by the young boy's parents to conduct in-home tutorials in 2013. Instead, for over 10 months, Friedman allegedly repeatedly assaulted and sexually abused the child.
Friedman, 30, was arrested in January 2015 for first-degree sexual conduct against a child and other shocking charges.
After several routine court appearances, prosecutors informed Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice Raymond Guzman on Wednesday that they are ready for trial in the fall.
According to court documents, Friedman allegedly hit the child in the back of the head, causing his glasses to fall off and injuring his hand.
On another occasion, while the boy's hand was in a cast, Friedman allegedly followed him into the bathroom and violated him, according to the criminal complaint.
Friedman allegedly sexually assaulted the boy, shoved a rag in his mouth and threatened him with a gun.
"You'd better not tell your parents or I'll kill you and your family," Friedman allegedly said to the boy.
If convicted on the top charge, Friedman faces up to 25 years in prison.
Friedman and his attorney Arthur Aidala both declined comment outside court.
