CLEARFIELD, Pa. (AP) - A central Pennsylvania pastry shop owner has been convicted of groping a female customer, not merely greeting her as he claimed.

WJAC-TV (https://bit.ly/1R0Z72X ) says 58-year-old Uzi Kornhauser was convicted by a Clearfield County jury of indecent assault and harassment.

Police charged the DuBois pastry shop owner after a woman claimed Kornhauser touched her inappropriately in February.

Kornhauser’s attorney had argued that the shop owner greets people with hugs and kisses because that’s how it’s done in his native country of Israel.

But District Attorney Shaw Jr. says Kornhauser grabbed the woman’s chest and kissed her forcibly, later telling her, “You have a nice butt.”



Shaw says, “Our argument to the jury was that the defendant was a wolf in the barnyard” who “sought out the weakest victim that he could.”
