In February, Rabbi Aryeh Goodman of East Brunswick, New Jersey, was charged with using an underage prostitute. Earlier this week the US Department of Justice (NJ office) took over the case and charged Goodman with sex trafficking. The 35-year-old repeatedly transported the girl over state lines in 2015 for their encounters, making it a federal crime.
According to news reports, In 2013, Goodman was accused of inappropriately touching a boy at a youth camp in Pennsylvania in 2001 where he worked as a counselor. He was charged with 12 counts of indecent assault. Pennsylvania court records show he was convicted of two counts of indecent assault of a child under age 13 and in October 2015 was sentenced to up to two years in prison. He is now already a registered sex offender.
