The so-called "boarding school bandit" -- a wealthy psychotherapist's son from New Rochelle -- will spend the next year in prison for a one-night string of three Central Park armed robberies.
In pleading guilty to three counts of felony robbery, Jesse Wasserman, 18, admitted yesterday that he rifled through the victim's pockets for cash and goods while his 19-year-old buddy brandished a .357 Magnum.
Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Thomas Farber agreed to youthful-offender status, meaning Wasserman will wind up with no record after his prison term.
The arrest had attracted attention in August 2010, when the young mugger turned out to be a former student of the elite, $42,500-a-year Vermont Academy and the son of a renowned psychotherapist, Stacy Berrin-Wasserman.
Under the plea conditions, the teen will turn himself in a week from today.
He'll remain in custody until his Sept. 6 sentencing, after which he'll be transferred upstate to serve a term of between 1 1/3 and four years in prison.
"It was the co-defendant telling him what to do," defense lawyer Norman Steiner said. "He was just a tag-along."
