CENTRAL ISLIP, N.Y. (1010 WINS) – A judge sentenced a 41-year-old woman to probation, community service and counseling after posting a suggestive ad on Craigslist about a 9-year-old girl.

LISTEN: 1010 WINS’ Kathleen Maloney reports

Margery Tannenbaum, of Hauppauge, N.Y., faced aggravated harassment charges and endangering the welfare of a child for retaliating against a 9-year-old girl for a dispute the girl had in school with Tannenbaum’s daughter.

The ad featured sexually explicit content and included the girl’s name and phone number.

Tannenbaum, a social worker on Long Island, will now serve a year of interim probation, perform 35 hours of community service, undergo psychiatric counseling and is prohibited from going anywhere near the little girl.

Tannenbaum’s lawyer, Tad Scharfenberg, said that she’s sorry for what she did.
