Alleged predator rabbi indicted


A Maryland rabbi was indicted on charges relating to sexual overtures toward a minor.

Rabbi David Kaye, 56, is scheduled to be arraigned June 9 by a U.S. district court on charges of “coercion and enticement” and “travel with intent to engage in illicit sexual contact with a minor.”

The charges stem from a “Dateline NBC” investigation last fall of alleged Internet predators. Kaye resigned his position as vice president of programs for the Rockville, Md.-based Panim: The Institute for Jewish Leadership and Values days before the “Dateline” episode aired.
