Rabbi Back In Maryland To Face Child Sex Charges


An Ohio rabbi accused of abusing a girl is being held on $5,000,000 bail at the Baltimore County Detention Center.

Frederick Karp of Beachwood, Ohio has been brought back to Maryland to face charges, including sexual abuse of a minor and perverted practice.

Police believe he sexually abused the young victim several times in 2014 in Baltimore County. Police don’t believe any of the incidents occurred at any Jewish facility in this region. The victim lives in Baltimore County.

Detectives say 50-year-old Karp was nowhere to be found when they went to his Ohio home to arrest him. They had previously interviewed him in Cleveland.

Police later picked him up at JFK airport in New York.
