SYRACUSE — A former middle school principal at Adirondack Central School District has pleaded guilty to sexually abusing a 15-year-old boy.

Mark Trabucco, 42, entered his plea Thursday to felony criminal sexual act.

Police say he contacted the teen through a classified ad on Craigslist and made arrangements to meet the boy near a strip mall in Clay 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.
