Los Angeles prosecutor Benny Forer did a FaceBook post:
Currently at lag b’omer event in LA.
Attached are photos of Mendy Tevel at the parade. Mendy is on a double-decker bus filled with children. It’s for the [Beverly Hills, LA] JEM [Community] Center, an organization run by his father-in-law [Rabbi Hertzel Illulian].
In absolute denial of the truth, they are allowing him to be around children, at a children’s parade.
Tevel HAS pending charges in NY for child molestation!!!
This is outrageous! Shame on the entire Illulian family [his wife’s family which operates JEM] for allowing this man continued access to children!
Tevel (whose legal name is Menachem M. Tewel) was publicly outed through a parlor event in Los Angeles in August 2013 which included testimony by victims. The event was publicized on the now inactive Jewish Community Watch website and then reported in the Los Angeles Jewish Journal. He was arrested two months later in LA on the basis of a Brooklyn, NY indictment and extradited to New York where he is out on bail on 37 child-sex-abuse felony charges (see details below).
