Rockland County District Attorney Thomas P. Zugibe today announced that Shmuel Dym (DOB 06/02/80) formerly of 4 Hadassah Lane, Monsey, New York has pled guilty to the entire indictment that charged him with:
Dym admitted to improperly touching two young brothers, ages seven and eight, multiple times during a three-month period.
The defendant pleaded guilty as a jury prepared to hear evidence in the child molestation case.
District Attorney Zugibe said, “This guilty plea will spare the victims from the emotional trauma of testifying at trial. It also is a guarantee that the defendant will live with the knowledge of what he has done and the pain he has caused the victims and their entire family.”
A probe into Dym's inappropriate behavior was launched by Ramapo Police in August of 2011 following a complaint of sexual abuse from a member of the ultra-Orthodox Jewish community.
He is scheduled to be sentenced on August 20, 2012.
Dym faces a minimum of probation to a maximum of seven years in state prison.
Pleading guilty to the top counts of the indictment ensures that the defendant will be a registered sex offender. He is subject to a classification hearing after sentencing.
The case was prosecuted by Special Victims Unit Senior Assistant District Attorney Patricia Gunning.
