The son of TV’s Judge Judy is being accused of interfering in the investigation of a child rape case that involves his former personal trainer.

A New York sheriff claims Putnam County District Attorney Adam Levy was trying to influence – and possibly undermine – the investigation surrounding the rape of a 12-year-old girl.

35-year-old Alexandru Hossu – a Romanian immigrant – was arrested last week on charges he raped the child twice in 2010.Judge Judy Sheindlin gives kiss of approval to son Adam Levy

Officials say the victim just recently came forward after confiding in a school counselor.

Hossu, a Romanian immigrant who has known Levy and his family for “years” —  is said to have worked for the District Attorney as a live-in personal trainer.

Despite the accusations,  Levy says he promptly recused himself from the case upon learning Hossu was being investigated.

Levy’s mother, Judy Sheindlin, is widely known as the no-nonsense, wise cracking TV judge, Judge Judy.
