YMCA Cancels Child Care Program ... President Is On The Sex Offender Registry

YMCA Cancels Child Care Program At South Windsor Synagogue After Discovering Its President Is On The Sex Offender Registry

The Indian Valley Family YMCA has pulled out of an arrangement to use space at Temple Beth Hillel in South Windsor, CT, citing safety concerns after discovering the congregationís president is listed on the stateís sex offender registry. The YMCA planned to use the synagogue for a before- and after-school child care program that was scheduled to start earlier this week.

According to records, Jason Wasserman, president of Temple Beth Hillel, was sentenced to probation in 2010 after pleading guilty to attempt to commit enticing a minor by computer and attempt to commit risk of injury to a minor.

Wasserman had been caught in a computer sting in 2008 after, police say, he went to Glastonbury to engage in sexual activity with a person he thought was a 13-year-old girl he had met online. The girl turned out to be a cop. Police say evidence showed that he also wanted to take sexually explicit pictures of the girl.

Parents blasted Town Councilman Jeffrey Glickman who they say put children at risk because he knew about Wassermanís sex offender status and kept it from the YMCA. Glickman tried to explain to YMCA officials that Wasserman was not a risk to children.
