According to LOHUD:
A Monsey rabbi and school principal was arrested Monday by Ramapo police after an investigation led by the Rockland District Attorney’s special unit dealing with crimes against children.
The exact charges against Gavriel Bodenheimer were unclear. His lawyer, David Ascher, said the charges were contained in a sealed indictment that he had not been able to see.
Bodenheimer, 71, was being processed Monday afternoon at the Rockland County jail, Ascher said. He said he has been told the arraignment and unsealing of the indictment will take place Tuesday morning.
Bodenheimer is principal of Bais Mikroh, a boys’ yeshiva.
Bodenheimer was described as extremely physically abusive in a Sept. 14, 2012 FaceBook post by Shlomo Silber, “Surviving Bais Mikroh” which also appeared the same day on the blog DovBear. It was subsequently posted in other orthodox-oriented blogs concerned about abuse. It would not surprise me if Bodenheimer is charged with physical abuse.
At the time, the posting created quite a stir because Silber was not using a pseudonym and seemed to be unafraid of being sued. I assume he was either recklessly bold or aware he had enough proof and financial/legal resources to cope with the threat. Some prominent askanim worked overtime to find ways of persuading Silber to drop the article, all to no avail, as far as I know.
I believe Bodenheimer’s arrest was long overdue. Kudos to Shlomo Silber for being our Nachshan on this case. Todah Rabbah.
