NO JAIL FOR SEX-ABUSE LIFEGUARD
Jonathan Beltre, a city lifeguard, was put on six years' probation yesterday for sexually
abusing two girls in a Brooklyn pool, but he was given youthful-offender status that will allow him to have no criminal record. He was suspended after the 13 year old girls reported the incident at the pool at the Glenwood Houses in July 2002. He will be monitored by the Metropolitan Center for Mental Health, where he may have to undergo psychological testing, therapy and alcohol and drug testing. He was convicted in September at a bench trial. The girls claimed that Beltre, then 18, had rubbed against them, but he maintained he was just playing with the girls in the pool.
