BOSTON (AP) — Authorities say a rabbi has admitted to sexually abusing three students while working in the Boston area as a religious teacher in the 1970s.

Suffolk County District Attorney Daniel Conley says Stanley Levitt’s trial on four counts of indecent assault and battery on a child was set to begin when he pleaded guilty on Wednesday.

A judge is scheduled to sentence Levitt on Thursday.

Prosecutors say the 66-year-old Philadelphia man lived in Boston and worked in Brookline when he abused three boys in his care.

A grand jury indicted him in 2009 after two victims disclosed Levitt assaulted them in 1975 while they were his students. A third victim later came forward.

Conley called the plea proof that the men who shared their secret about being abused as sixth-graders were telling the truth.
