Rabbi Charged After TV Sex Sting


May 20th - 6:37am

ALEXANDRIA, Va. - A rabbi has been charged with traveling across state lines to engage in sex acts with a 13-year-old boy after being caught in a nationally televised sting operation.

Fifty-six-year-old David Kaye of Rockville appeared in U.S. District Court in Alexandria.

He's being held pending a detention hearing Monday.

Kaye resigned from his position as vice president of the Rockville-based Institute for Jewish Leaders and Values in the wake of the sting.

In November, NBC's "Dateline" program ran a sting operation in northern Virginia with an Internet watchdog group called Perverted Justice.
