Jenkintown Karate Instructor Accused Of Fondling Students
Dec 3, 2003 9:15 am US/Eastern
JENKINTOWN, PA (KYW 1060) A Montgomery County jury Wednesday will decide the fate of a Jenkintown karate instructor accused of kissing and fondling two of his teenage female students.
And the panel has to wrestle with a rare homosexual defense.
The two girls told the jury that Stephen Glazer kissed and fondled them.
But Glazer's business partner surprised a packed courtroom when she told the panel that - he's gay.
His lawyer Steve Jarrett says fondling girls would not be in character:
"It is not in the nature of Lee Glazer to have any interest in any adolescent girl whatsoever."
Prosecutor Todd Stephens is hoping the jury doesn't buy it: "I think that was just a convenient bunch of bunk that the defense came up with at the last minute."
The girls were also described as having the karate skill to gauge eyes and break bones if assaulted.
Stephens told the jury the girls however liked and trusted him - and weren't likely to break his nose.
