NEW YORK — Four men have been arrested on charges they photographed a 17-year-old girl testifying in a New York sexual abuse trial against a religious counselor.

The men were at the Brooklyn trial of Nechemya Weberman on Thursday. He has pleaded not guilty to charges he abused the girl for years when he was supposed to be counseling her. Both belong to an ultra-Orthodox Jewish sect.

The girl was on the witness stand when Weberman's supporters snapped images. One was posted on Twitter, though the girl's name was not included.

It's illegal to photograph in courtrooms without a court order. Court officers confiscated the cellphones. The men face contempt charges.

Before the trial, other men were charged with trying to bribe the girl so she would drop charges.
