Haredi rabbi from Ofakim charged with sexual assault

Another disturbing case has come up of a so-called guru who betrayed the trust of his followers:
A haredi rabbi from Ofakim in southern Israel has been arrested on suspicion of sexually assaulting woman who came to him for guidance.

The rabbi was charged specifically with sexual offenses, sodomy, and manipulating his leadership position. He will be brought for a remand hearing on Thursday at the Magistrate's Court in Beersheva.

Police learned of the case, Channel 10 reports, after a private citizen filed a complaint, claiming that one of the alleged victims had spoken to him about the rabbi's actions.

So far, two women have filed complaints against the rabbi for indecent acts carried out several years ago.

More women are expected to come forward and local detectives believe the rabbi's crimes could be far more widespread.

A similar case took place in Israel over the summer, when a prominent rabbi from northern Israel was accused of sexually assaulting at least ten different women.
Whether the victims were part of an insular community, they shouldn't be part of one that could maintain an insular lifestyle. If the rabbi's guilty, I hope he gets thrown in the slammer for a long time.
