A Boy Scout leader was released from jail four months after being accused of molesting a boy 200 hundred times over the years, according to a Sunday report.

Boy Scout leader  and doctor Joseph T. Mackey was originally sentenced to five years in jail but is going to be released after completing a 120-day sex offender assessment program, the New York Post reported.

Mackey’s case evaluator noted he would be released “hesitantly,” a judge said in a court order.

Mackey was found guilty of one count of statutory sodomy. His victim alleged Mackey sexually abused him for an undisclosed amount of years at least 200 times starting when he was 11.

“As a seemingly trusted medical professional, Scout and community leader, he knew what I needed as a young child and chose to take whatever he wanted of me,” the victim said in a statement.  “I was robbed of normalcy and a normal adolescence.”
