It's Tough to be Orthodox, Well-Dressed and an Alleged Criminal

Dina Wein Reiss, an alleged Orthodox scamster (not that there's a trend or anything), is out on bail now, waiting for her trial to begin next year. Via Tablet, Fortune reports that, after she was released, Reiss "enlisted her rabbi in her bid to convince a judge that she should not be required to wear an electronic monitoring ankle bracelet. Orthodox practice, the rabbi said, forbids women from wearing slacks or pantsuits. Summer was coming, Wein Reis's lawyer noted, and any skirt or dress shorter than ankle length would reveal the bracelet, which would complicate her efforts to get a new job. The judge agreed."
