BROOKLYN - The sentencing of the Borough Park rabbi convicted of sexually abusing a 16-year-old boy was postponed Monday afternoon.

His attorney, Arthur Aidala, says Rabbi Baruch Lebovits needs more time to prepare.

Lebovits is also awaiting two other separate sex abuse cases. His attorney says the outcome of the sentence for this trial may affect how he?ll plea for the next two.

Rabbi Baruch Lebovits was once a powerful and well known member of the Hasidic community in Borough Park.

The sentencing had been rescheduled for April 12. Lebovits could face up to 32 years in prison.
