Brooklyn, NY – Kings County District Attorney Charles J. Hynes today announced that Emanuel Yegutkin, 33, was sentenced to 55 years in prison, for sexually abusing three young boys over the course of 10 years.
“This strong sentence once again proves that the people of Brooklyn will not tolerate crimes against children. Hopefully this brings some closure to these child victims so they can go on to lead happy and productive lives,” said District Attorney Hynes.
Yegutkin was convicted on 75 counts.
Yegutkin was a principal of a private Jewish high school in Brooklyn. He became a close friend of the victims’ family and visited their home frequently. From 1996 to 2005, Yegutkin sexually abused two of the boys when they were ages seven to 15-years-old, and in 2008, exposed the third boy to pornography. Yegutkin was arrested in January 2009.
