A former director of a Jewish center in Iowa City has been convicted of molesting a 9-year-old boy.

A Johnson County jury found 29-year-old David Weltman guilty Thursday of second-degree sexual abuse. Prosecutors said Weltman abused the boy last year as he gave the boy Hebrew lessons at the Hillel House.

The boy reported to investigators that Weltman once picked him up, carried him into another room and touched him inappropriately. Weltman also confessed to a one-time friend that he has touched a child and that he is sexually attracted to young boys, police said.
