The State Attorney's Office's International Department petitioned the Jerusalem District Court on Wednesday to extradite convicted child molester Avraham Mondrovitch to the US, Israel Radio reported. In 1984, the New York Supreme Court convicted Mondrovitch in his absence of five counts of sodomy and eight counts of indecent assault of children between the ages of nine and 15 in Brooklyn's haredi community. Mondrovitch, who allegedly abused the children while impersonating a child psychologist, escaped to Israel when police began investigating the case, and has been living freely in the country ever since.
