Child rapist in Haredi community confesses

The police have arrested a man of Haredi background who sexually assaulted 11 children, and he's confessed to his crimes:
A suspected sex offender who has admitted to assaulting at least 11 minors was jailed in the US for similar offenses against two girls aged 8 and 10, Channel 10 revealed Thursday.

Police arrested Simon Benisty, a 48-year-old resident of Jerusalem, on Wednesday, after the mother of an 11-year-old girl filed a complaint against him over an alleged sexual assault against her daughter. In the course of the investigation, Benisty confessed to sexual misconduct against 10 other minors. He was remanded for six days on Thursday.

The New York sex offenders registry designates Benisty as a “sexually violent offender.” According to his page in the registry, he was sentenced to 11 months in prison and was subsequently deported to Israel in 2010. Benisty’s photo was published on a New York ultra-Orthodox community blog devoted to warning against sexual predators.

Israel doesn’t have a publicly available registry of sex offenders.
Well now that's a big problem. How can children be kept safe if the information isn't made available to the public? YnetNews says:
The investigation has shown that these instances were known to several sources within the haredi community, and the suspect said that over the course of the year, he was privately treated with medication that was supposed to lessen his sexual urges. Police believe the treatments were funded by haredi sources in order to prevent the filing of a complaint with the police. The doctor and the source that funded the treatment will be interrogated. [...]

The police suspect that in addition to the ten instances to which the man has admitted, there are many more cases, due to his history of sexual crimes against children, and having spent time in prison outside of Israel. Police are examining the issue with the help of Interpol.
And many of these cases have been brought to light, thanks to the help of the internet.
