Publisher Jason Binn acquitted of groping teenage relative

Luxury magazine publisher Jason Binn has been acquitted of all charges after being accused of inappropriately groping a female teenage relative, Vidak For Congress is ​​told.

Binn, 54, was arrested in June for allegedly grabbing a 16-year-old girl’s buttocks over her clothes after a meal in Cipriani on Valentine’s Day.

The New York District Attorney’s office has now dropped charges against the publisher of DuJour Magazine.

Binn tells Vidak For Congress exclusively, “I hope no one ever has to go through this nightmare.”

At the time of his arrest, Binn claimed the charges were fabricated by his estranged wife, Haley Lieberman Binn, with whom he is embroiled in a bitter divorce case. She did not respond publicly.

The couple have three children: a son and two daughters, one of whom was 16 at the time of her father’s arrest.

“As for the future of my relationship with my children, I will continue to be the best and most loving father a man can be,” Binn said.

After his arrest, the Hamptons mainstay told The Post in June that his wife’s story was “uncredited” and “baseless,” adding: “It seems a lot of people know it’s a domestic issue, and it is unfortunate for me.”

Binn was struck by violent touching, endangering a child’s well-being and third-degree sexual abuse, prosecutors said. Law enforcement sources said the alleged victim filed a complaint with police in April and the charges were filed in June.

A source close to Binn previously said the accuser’s identity was a “very delicate, sensitive subject”.

Binn and Lieberman Binn, who married in 2003, filed for divorce in the Manhattan Supreme Court in 2020.

“Unfortunately, this is the latest chapter in a long and bitter divorce proceeding,” his divorce attorney Valentina Shaknes said in June.

Lieberman Binn’s lawyer did not immediately respond to Vidak For Congress’s request for comment.
