The state Supreme Court will hold a hearing on October 15th for a 59- year- old Monsey man, who is accused of breaking probation by attending the same wedding as a 14- year-old boy whom he had sexually abused. Moishe Turner was charged with and pleads guilty on January 18th to second-degree criminal sex act, for sexually abusing the boy on seven occasions throughout July of 2011. At the time Justice William Kelly sentenced Turner to ten years probation and registered him as a level two sex offender, which means that there is a chance that the offender will repeat the crime. Justice Kelly will see the hearing on October 15th where Turner is being charged with second- degree criminal contempt for violating an order of protection by being within 500 feet of the victim, and for being on school grounds, where the wedding took place. Turner also violated his probation by not holding a full-time job and not informing his probation officer of a car that he is currently driving. According to Prosecutor Jennifer Parietti, if found guilty, Turner could face jail time, though more than six months in state prison would erase the already existing ten year probation.
