NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — A retired rabbi from Connecticut will soon be extradited to Norfolk to face charges from four decades ago.
Officers in Cheshire, Connecticut arrested 72-year-old Eric Silver. He faces indecent liberties with a child under 14 years of age. The charges are from incidents that happened in Norfolk between 1968 and 1970.
The felony charges are under Virginia’s sexual offense law and since the allegations involve a victim under the age of 15, there is no statute of limitations.
Silver was expected to appear before a judge in Norfolk Friday morning.
