NEW HAVEN -

The New Haven rabbi accused of raping and molesting a teenage boy made bail Monday.

Rabbi Daniel Greer, 77, was arrested last month and charged with sexually assaulting the victim at a New Haven yeshiva school between 2001 and 2005. Greer was a founder and principal of the school, which opened in 1977.

A federal jury awarded $15 million in damages to the teen in a civil lawsuit in May.

Greer's attorney says he plans to answer the charges in court.
