CHICAGO (WLS) -- A Chicago rabbi has been sentenced for sexually assaulting a teenage boy.

Aryeh "Larry" Dudovitz will spend eight years in prison.

The victim was 15-years-old at the time of the assault.

Prosecutors say the boy and his family were sleeping over at the rabbi's home during a Jewish holiday in 2006 when the attack happened.

The rabbi was accused of giving the boy alcohol before assaulting him after his family went to sleep.

Dudovitz, a married father of nine children, was a rabbi at a West Rogers Park synagogue at the time of the assault.
