Rabbi Nechemya Weberman arrested

We don’t get many cases of child molestation reported from within the Jewish community. Rabbi Nechemya Weberman’s case will change all that. He was arrested for molesting a girl when she 12-years-old. The abuse allegedly went on for years.

“The charges (against Weberman) are horrendous. They are disgusting. And they’re despicable. Not just — it’s absolutely awful. But what I will tell you is that this man will die before he’s branded a child molestor,” Farkas said.

Sources in the case said Weberman is not a licensed therapist. But  on Friday NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly added one thing more: “The rabbi … is NOT a rabbi! He’s a 52-year-old male arrested for molestation of a young woman who is still a minor.”

Not a Rabbi, but still a rabbi… OK then. He’s still an alleged pedophile.
