Rabbi Pleads Not Guilty to Charitable Contribution Tax Fraud

Recently, a Brooklyn Rabbi entered a not guilty plea to a charge involving the fraudulent use of charities to geneterate tax deductions.  According to one New York article:

Authorities say Weisz helped solicit millions of dollars in contributions to five Spinka charitable groups by promising to secretly refund up to 95 percent of the donations. That way, the contributors could falsely claim higher tax deductions, authorities said.
