    An American Chabad rabbi has been arrested after turning himself into police on charges of paying an underage prostitute for sex.

    Aryeh Goodman, 35, is accused of sleeping with the 17-year-old girl at a hotel near his home on February 1.

    He turned himself in to police in East Brunswick, New Jersey, earlier this month, three years after he pleaded guilty to molesting an underage boy at a summer camp.

    Goodman, who is married with children, was one of 30 men who allegedly paid two pimps from the Bronx to have sex with the underage girl.

    According to a statement from the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office, 18-year-old Gabriella Colon and Richard Ortiz, 35, were also arrested and have been accused of human trafficking and child endangerment.

    Goodman is registered as a Tier 3 or high risk sex offender after he was convicted on two counts of indecent assault against minors in 2015.

    This month he was charged with one count of engaging in prostitution with a child and one count of endangering a child.
