Thomas Grossman, Attorney at Law
Police in Florida allege that a Florida man abducted and sexually exploited a 14-year-old girl from Erie County to West Virginia after meeting online and exchanging messages that included sexually explicit pictures of both parties.
Thomas Grossman is facing federal charges in this matter, which carry more severe penalties than state charges and have reached an important court hearing this week.
Early Life and Education
Grossman graduated from Lehigh University in 1988, and as such often donates his time and resources towards school improvement projects. Additionally, he provides support to local charities like Boy Scouts of America and Citizens for Community Values as well as Grace Chapel where he serves as both elder and Sunday school teacher.
The girl, who has intellectual disabilities, told police she met Grossman online two to three times weekly for two months. They exchanged nude photos between meetings. According to her account he claimed to be between 16-19.
He is being held at Central Regional Jail on charges of kidnapping, child concealment and other felonies; his $500,000 bond remains outstanding while his attorneys attempt to move his case from local to federal court in Erie.
