A Manhattan music teacher has pleaded guilty to charges that he molested a young girl.

Police arrested 70-year-old Ilya Lehman in July, saying he abused the girl at her home during a lesson and was caught when the child's mother walked in.

Lehman is the owner of The Early Ear Music School, which has locations on the Upper East Side and Upper West Side.

Multiple reports say Lehman offered the family money and offered to leave the country for a year to keep the allegations quiet.

Lehman's attorney says that his client is deeply remorseful.

Lehman pleaded guilty to repeated sexual conduct against a child.
