Feasterville, Pennsylvania: “Fourteen,” the young woman responded when asked: How old was she when she began having sex with Lee Kaplan, a man 33 years her senior?
She was 14 when she moved in with him, she testified, 15 when their first child was born, and 17 when the second one came.
Holding a microphone with thin fingers, occasionally looking down or putting a hand to her face, the teenager who was allegedly “gifted” to Kaplan spoke softly but steadily on the witness stand Tuesday at a preliminary hearing in Feasterville for Kaplan and her parents, Daniel and Savilla Stoltzfus.
