NEW SQUARE - The sex abuse case against a New Square rabbi is heading to trial.

Rabbi Moshe Taubenfeld is accused of repeatedly molesting a 9-year-old boy over a five-year span.

Taubenfeld’s lawyer filed a motion for the case to go to trial after his client turned down a plea deal.

The district attorney had offered Taubenfeld one count of sexual conduct against a child, a felony carrying a possible 10-year sentence, in exchange for a guilty plea.

News 12 spoke with the rabbi's alleged victim, who says he prays for justice and that people in New Square will finally realize that you can't hurt a child.

The judge scheduled jury selection to begin Sept. 15. Rabbi Taubenfeld remains free on a $25,000 bail.
