Florida rabbi arrested for molesting 11-year-old girl

A rabbi in Miami Beach, a possible Haredi, has been arrested for assault on an underaged girl:
An 11-year-old girl who has alleged that a rabbi molested her inside his Miami Beach art gallery in late May shared her side of the story in recently-released state documents. [...]

The 11-year-old said she told her mother about what allegedly happened the following day. She said Karro went to her mom's job "because he didn't want her to notify police."

Karro was arrested and charged with lewd and lascivious molestation. He has denied any wrongdoing. "Very simple: It's love, harmony, cleansing, nothing else," he told 7News after bonding out of jail May 28. "There was nothing there inappropriate, nothing that I had violated anybody's right."

The girl's mother spoke out about the alleged incident on June 24, after 7News aired surveillance video showing Karro giving her an envelope which, she said, contained cash. She gave that money to police. "God forbid, if you can just close your eyes and think about a child who comes home to you, very scared, and says, 'Mom, I have something to tell you,'" she said.

The mother said, since Karro's arrest, she has been outcast by her local community. "I know that I have to stand up for my daughter and for this community, maybe for the voices that are scared to speak out. I'm here for you," she said.
From the sound of this, I get the further feeling this is a Haredi community they speak of here, because some of those are more likely to ostracize victims. I've said it before, and will again, that nobody who's discriminated against from within should remain there, and I hope the family of the victim will leave that community.

"The Russia-born Karro, who was raised in Jerusalem, is a substitute rabbi at the Shaare Ezra Sephardic Synagogue Congregation on Miami Beach."

http://www.shaareezra.com/about-our-community/

Shaare Ezra is a vibrant and Orthodox Sephardic Congregation, which has grown in, leaps and bounds from a small Shabbat Minyan to a fully-fledged community.

A few years ago the Sepharadim of the Miami Beach area decided to form a Minyan just for the Holidays. Mr. Abe Franco initiated the move dedicating the Shul in memory of his father “Ezra Franco” Z”L and with the help of Rabbi Issac Sharbani Z”L . The Shul grow under leadership of Rabbi Yosef Galimidi and later on continued with full effort and dedication of Rabbi Tzvi Karro of “Karro Art International and at present is led by Rabbi Tannenbaum.
