OKC Rabbi free on bond after arrest

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ A local rabbi is free on $80,000 bond after being arrested on complaints of sexual battery and committing lewd acts with a child.

Rabbi Richard Marcovitz, 64, was arrested Thursday after police questioned him about complaints he might have improperly touched two children and had inappropriate contact with two teachers, a police report said.

In the first complaint, a girl said she was touched between Jan. 1 and May 25, 2000 at the Solomon Schecter Academy. The school is at Emmanuel Synagogue where Marcovitz is rabbi.

The second complaint came from school officials who said Marcovitz had been touching a second girl at the school in an inappropriate manner between Jan. 2 and Feb. 8.
