A West Rogers Park rabbi has been convicted of sexually assaulting a teenage boy in his home nine years ago.
Aryeh “Larry” Dudovitz, 45, was found guilty Monday of criminal sexual assault by Judge Evelyn Clay, according to Cook County court records.
Dudovitz, of the 6400 block of North Albany, was charged in 2013 with the assault, which happened while the boy was sleeping in the rabbi’s home in October 2006, authorities said.
Prosecutors said the family of the victim, who was 15 at the time of the assault, was originally unsure about whether they wanted to proceed criminally.
Dudovitz faces up to 15 years in prison when he is sentenced Dec. 16.
