Weberman Denies Sexual Abuse, But Not Raiding His Charity

The ultra-Orthodox man who's accused of sexually abusing a girl he counseled testified on Wednesday that he "never ever" did so, but he didn't deny dipping into the funds of a charity he founded, paying his kids' private school tuition from the nonprofit's coffers. "Did you use this not-for-profit for your own personal gain?" Assistant District Attorney Kevin O'Donnel asked Nechemya Weberman, according to the New York Daily News. "Yes I did," he replied. Weberman was less forthcoming about the lingerie shop purchases charged to the nonprofit's credit cards: "This is the first time I heard about it."
