Georgetown Peeping Tom rabbi issues public apology | News
WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- A disgraced Georgetown rabbi who admitted to secretly videotaping women undressing has issued a public apology from jail.
In an apology given to Washington Jewish Week, Barry Freundel says, “No matter how many times I attempt to apologize, it will never be enough. There are simply no words to sufficiently assuage the hurt that I caused. I am sorry, beyond measure, for my heinous behavior.”
Prosecutors say Freundel installed hidden cameras in a ritual bath adjacent to Kesher Israel Congregation in Georgetown and may have recorded as many as 200 women.
Freundel pleaded to charges of voyeurism and is currently serving a six and a half year prison sentence.
