Rabbi pleads guilty to child sex abuse

A rabbi who taught at a Jewish Orthodox boys' school in Melbourne has pleaded guilty to child sex abuse dating back 20 years.

David Kramer, 52, pleaded guilty in the Melbourne Magistrates Court to six charges of indecent assault for the sexual abuse of students at the Jewish orthodox Yeshiva College in St Kilda East between 1989 and 1992.

It is believed Kramer is the first member of a Jewish institution to admit to child sex abuse allegations in Australia.

Kramer fled overseas in the early 1990s when accusations of abuse were raised with the college.

He was sentenced to seven years in jail in the United States for abusing a 12-year-old boy.

Kramer was extradited to face charges in Australia last year.
