Arrest warrant issued for rabbi accused of child molestation

A felony warrant has been issued for the arrest of a
rabbi accused of child molestation and sexual abuse.

Yavapai County prosecutors say 55-year-old David Lipman faces eleven
counts of child molestation and five counts of sexual abuse.

The charges stem from an investigation involving two girls, ages 16
and 14.

Prescott police received a call on May 13th from a Child Protective
Services employee who reported possible sexual abuse of two girls.

A Prescott Police Detective says that prompted a criminal
investigation against Lipman, who admitted to inappropriate touching.

Lipman was placed on administrative leave Monday from Temple B'rith
Shalom, where he has been rabbi since April 2002.
