BROOKLYN - The trial against a Hasidic counselor continues today at Brooklyn Supreme Court.

Necheyma Weberman is accused of molesting a 12-year-old girl sent to him for spiritual counseling over the span of three years. Weberman is facing 88 counts related to sexual abuse on a minor and has pleaded not guilty to all counts.

Weberman has repeatedly claimed his innocence, insisting the girl is accusing him because she believes that he told her parents about her boyfriend.
