Trial date set for Australian child abuse case

    The trial of a Jewish man, accused of multiple counts of child molestation against students at an Orthodox boys’ school in Melbourne, will begin next year.

    Judge Sue Pullen ordered the trial of David Cyprys, a former security guard contracted to Yeshivah College, to begin on July 29, 2013.

    Mr Cyprys faces 41 charges, including six counts of rape. He has pleaded innocence since the allegations were made public last September.

    The charges date back to the 1980s at the Chabad-run school in Melbourne, which is located in the same complex as the Chabad-Lubavitch headquarters. The case was brought by 12 alleged victims, three of whom now live in America. Only two have spoken publicly.

    Two other sexual abuse cases have emerged since Mr Cyprys was arrested.Ezriel Kestecher, a 26-year-old former Chabad youth leader, was recently charged with four counts of indecent acts on a minor; and moves are afoot to extradite from America David Kramer, a former Yeshivah College teacher who fled Melbourne in the mid-1990s amid accusations that he had sexually abused boys at the school.
