Family Of Jeish Rabbi Busted On Sex Abuse Charges Claims Rabbi Extorted, Charges False

The mother of Rabbi Yoel Malik (pictured at left) denied that her 33-year-old son was a child sexual abuser, saying that he had "nothing to do" with teenage boys. She also alleges that Malik was extorted by a former yeshiva employee she does not name (but who allegedly is Moshe Pinter, who had his own brush with the law over child sex abuse allegations several years ago) for $10,000. Malik refused to pay him and the man allegedly responded by turning Malik over to the police by tipping off an anonymous rape hotline.

Brooklyn Yeshiva Rabbi Arrested On Child Sex Abuse Charges Rabbi Yoel Malik's arrest is drawing considerable attention, in part because it so closely followed the sentencing of another Satmar hasid, Rabbi Nechemya Weberman, to 103 years in prison for repeatedly sexually abusing a young girl over a three year period beginning when she was 12-years-old.
