COMBATTING FOOLISHNESS WITH HUMOR, SATIRE AND SERIOUS TALK ABOUT SEX ABUSE IN THE ORTHODOX JEWISH WORLD
On 03/19/14, the New York State Police in Monroe announce the arrest of Joel Gluck, age 27, from Kiryas Joel, NY, for Forcible Touching and Endangering the Welfare of a Child.
On the eve of 03/17/14, Gluck was at a community gathering in Kiryas Joel and lured a 9-year-old child away to a remote area where he forcibly touched the intimate part of the child. The victim confided in his parents of the event and reported it to the Kiryas Joel Public Safety who worked in conjunction with the New York State Police.
Gluck was released on his own recognizance and is to appear in the Town of Monroe court on 03/24/14 at 5:30 pm.
If the report is accurate, the Satmar controlled Kiryas Joel Public Safety division is to be commended for promptly bringing this case to the attention of the appropriate authorities. I am not sure if they did it because of enlightened thinking or fear of prosecution for obstructing reporting. Either way, this is good news.
