Yosef Kolko pleaded guilty in May to abusing the then-11-year-old boy in 2008 and 2009. He had been scheduled to be sentenced last week and faced up to 40 years in prison.

Attorney Alan Zegas  has filed a motion to withdraw the guilty plea. Zegas tells The Asbury Park Press that Kolko was under pressure from his community at the time he pleaded guilty.

A judge gave Zegas until the end of the month to file a brief in support of his motion to withdraw the plea. A hearing on the matter is scheduled for October 17.
