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.
