A NJ Rabbi, Lanner, and Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach were both accused of sexual misconduct. It didn't catch up to Shlomo but Lanner is being brought to court. He was found guilty, his lawyers are appealing it. When found guilty Lanner said, "Baruch Dayan Haemet" which in Hebrew means, "blessed be the true Judge".
