Frederick Martin Karp, the spiritual living director at the Menorah Park Center for Senior Living in Beachwood, was arrested earlier this year at JFK Airport in New York following a criminal investigation. Investigators said he molested a child in Maryland from 2009 to 2014.

According to the Baltimore County Circuit Court, Karp pleaded guilty to sexual abuse of a minor on Thursday.

He was sentenced to 35 years in prison with 13 years suspended, meaning he will serve 22 years before his 5 years of supervised probation.
