Nuchem Rosenberg’s blog alleges that Meir Dascolowitz attempted to sexually assault a boy in a mikvah in Williamsburg this morning. Readers of the Frum Follies may remember Dascolowitz was arrested on May 11, arraigned on May 12 when cash bail was set at $75,000, and met his bail with the proceeds of pidyon shvuyim fundraising. He has also since claimed he himself was molested by Baruch Lebovits who is now serving a 10-32 year sentence for molesting a teen boy.
I am told that there is a collection being made to secure bail for the recently arrested molester, Meir Dascalowitz. If so, I wonder; are they also collecting for a mashgiach temimi (24/7 kosher supervisor) to make sure he does not molest any additional kids while he is out on bail. If not we may end up having aveirah haboh b’mitzvah (a sin derived from what seemed like a good deed).
Alas, we do indeed have an aveirah haboh b’mitzvah.
