Instead, she told a counselor years later, he was abusing her.
'When you think about it,' assistant district attorney Kevin O’Donnell said, the alleged victim's parents 'were actually paying the defendant to have sex with their daughter.'
O'Donnell added that Weberman abused the girl, now age 17, 'over and over again.'
The rabbi's lawyers are fiercely denying the allegations. They say the girl made up the story to retaliate against him.
They say the girl went to police only after Weberman and her parents set up hidden cameras to secretly record the girl having sex with her boyfriend when she was still underage.
Weberman turned the tapes over to police in the hopes that the boyfriend would be prosecuted.
The charges against the boyfriend were later dropped.
Weberman's lawyers also claim that he had been business partners with the girl's parents and that the families had a falling out.
The Satmar Hasidic community in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, has rallied around the rabbi - sponsoring fundraisers to pay for his legal defense.
Weberman is charged with 88 counts of sex assault.
