SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) — A former middle school principal in upstate New York has pleaded guilty to sexually abusing a 15-year-old boy.

Syracuse.com reports 42-year-old Mark Trabucco entered his plea Thursday to felony criminal sexual act.

Trabucco was the former principal for the Adirondack Central School District in Boonville in Oneida County. Police say he contacted the teen through a classified ad on Craigslist.

Police say Trabucco made arrangements to meet the boy near a strip mall in Clay, near Syracuse, in April 2017, and the teen reported the sex acts to a family member.

Police say the teen wasn’t a student in the Adirondack Central School District.

Trabucco is facing 10 years of probation during his sentencing hearing in January. He will be required to register as a sex offender.
