CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

A rabbi from West Rogers Park was arrested Saturday in the alleged sexual molestation of a teenage boy in 2006 — even though prosecutors say authorities were told at the time, the Chicago Sun-Times is reporting.

Larry L. Dudovitz, 45, of the 6400 block of North Albany, was charged with one count of criminal sexual assault, prosecutors said. Cook County Judge Maria Kuriakos Ciesil shot down a request that he be held without bail and ordered him held in lieu of $100,000. She also grilled a prosecutor about the six-year delay.

"Now it's 2013 and we're charging him?" Kuriakos Ciesil said.

A prosecutor said the family of the victim — who was 15 at the time — was originally unsure about whether they wanted to proceed criminally.

Dudovitz is accused of trying to assault the victim while the boy was sleeping in his home in October 2006, court records show.
