BALTIMORE COUNTY, Maryland– New developments tonight in the case of a well-known Cleveland-area rabbi, facing child molestation charges in Maryland.

The Fox Eight I-Team, which first broke news of the arrest of Rabbi Frederick Karp at JFK Airport in New York, has learned that Karp has been extradited from New York to Maryland.

He is currently being held on $5 million bond.

Karp, who is a rabbi at the Menorah Park Center for Senior Living in Beachwood, is being held tonight at the Baltimore County Detention Center.
