Crown Heights Teacher Arrested Charged with Child Molestation

A tutor working in boy’s schools in Crown Heights was arrested last week and charged with a number of heinous crimes, including child molestation and endangerment.

Law enforcement sources told that the suspect, 32-year-old Gershon Selinger, turned himself in to police in the 84th Precinct on Wednesday night to answer for charges that he abused a 6-year-old girl.

Selinger was a teacher in Darchai Menachem, a boy’s school in Crown Heights, but has not worked there in a number of years. Selinger developed a reading assistance curriculum and worked as a tutor and as a P3 in a number of boy’s schools including Oholei Torah, Lubavitcher Yeshiva, Ohr Menachem and Darchai Menachem.

According to representatives from all those schools it is not believed that any of their students or parents has made any such allegations against Selinger.

Selinger was released on Thursday, February 26th, on a $75,000 bond along with an order of protection against him. He is due back in court on March 3rd.
