SMITHFIELD TWP., Pa. -

A former Monroe County camp counselor convicted of sexually assaulting a camper is now facing several months in prison and more legal trouble.

Ben-Porat was found guilty of molesting a 12-year-old boy at Camp Dora Golding in Smithfield Township last July.

The judge also ordered Ben-Porat to register as a sex offender and says he must attend counseling.

He's also now facing another lawsuit. Tuesday the victim filed a civil suit against Ben-Porat and the owner of the camp.
