The plea did not require he register as a sex offender, an outcome that upset the parents of one the boys. In an interview with the Times Union, the parents said they trusted Weiss with their boy to the same degree as if their son had been home with them.
"It turned out not to be the case," the father said, speaking on the condition of anonymity. "You feel betrayed, you feel disgusted and you feel that you would like everything to be thrown at him within the boundaries of the legal system ... we found out the legal system doesn't always do everything."
They were not pleased with his sentence — 60 days and 3 years' probation — which they called light.
"We wanted him on the registry," said the mother, referring to the New York State Sex Offender Registry.
The boy's mother said they only learned of Weiss' abuse after their son told another youth who, in turn, reported it to an adult.
