Default Minneapolis rabbi among those charged in Twin Cities underage-sex stings


Minneapolis rabbi among those charged in Twin Cities underage-sex stings
UPDATED: August 6, 2018 at 5:23 am

A rabbi at a Jewish learning center in Minneapolis is among those implicated in a metro-area law enforcement sting aimed at combating the online solicitation of sex with children.

Aryeh Cohen, 44
, of St. Louis Park, was among those arrested along with several others in the undercover operation, which was carried out in the lead-up to the Super Bowl at various locations around the metro, including North St. Paul, criminal charges say.

Cohen was among those who responded to an ad and subsequently struck up a sexual conversation with an undercover agent, eventually texting the agent a picture of his genitalia, charges say.

He was arrested when he allegedly arrived to meet the undercover agent in North St. Paul on Feb. 1. As he was being taken to a police station, the rabbi made an unsolicited remark to an officer, saying, “I sort of deserve it,” the complaint said.

He allegedly added that he didn’t “think much would happen” when he arrived at the residence because the person he thought he was meeting was sexually inexperienced, the complaint said.
