The Makeup Of A Predator?

Psychiatrist Alan Horowitz

Psychiatrist Alan Horowitz

Alan Horowitz is a convicted child molester.

Alan Horowitz is an Ivy-League educated child psychiatrist. He’s also an ordained Orthodox Rabbi. He’s not exactly the kind of guy you would peg as child sexual predator. That’s why the community of Hagerstown, Md. was shocked in 1983 when Horowitz was convicted of performing an unnatural sexual act on one of his 12-year-old male patients. His medical license was suspended. He was sentenced to five years probation. And after serving that time Horowitz took off.

He ended up in Israel where he met up a “matchmaker” who introduced to him to a woman who became his wife. He moved in with her and her kids and began studying to become a Rabbi. His new family had no idea why he fled the United States. But, soon they found out. Israeli police began investigating charges Horowitz was sexually abusing some of his wife’s children. But before they could arrest him, he took off again. The next time he resurfaced was in Schenectady, N.Y.

That’s where cops say he went back to what he’s always done – harm children. In 1991, Horowitz was charged with 41sex-related crimes against children. When investigators went to lock him up, he was gone. Police went all the way to Iowa to find him and on July, 27, 1992 Horowitz pled guilty to raping a 9-year-old psychiatric patient. Horowitz went to jail and didn’t see freedom until 2004.

When Horowitz was released in 2004, he was told he was on parole until 2011. He was ordered to stay away from children, to register with the state, and to meet regularly with his parole officer. The reason for all of the conditions of release from prison was the state felt he was a risk to children. In fact, there was no question that this man was a predator of children. In one of his writings for NAMBLA, the North American Man/Boy Love Association, Horowitz wrote, “I would like to use this space to comment on just what it is that makes incarceration different, and worse, for child-lovers than for virtually anyone else.”

The Mind Games and The Manhunt

Horowitz followed the conditions of his parole for almost two years, until June 7, 2006. That was the last day he met with his parole officer. Cops say the next day he hopped a plane from Newark, N.J. to Narita, Japan not far from Tokyo. Later in June, Horowitz wrote a letter to his parole officer postmarked from Israel. He told his parole officer he wanted to change his address for the state’s sex offender registry and gave a new address in Tel Aviv.

That’s right, at the same time Horowitz was seemingly flaunting his new found freedom, he was appearing to “do the right thing” by updating his address with the state. Police quickly got a warrant for his arrest for violating his parole and the manhunt was on. Police also named him to New York’s 100 Most Wanted List.
