Leifer case goes before Australian jury

The case of Haredi child molestor Malka Leifer has headed for the jury's verdict:
An Australian jury retired on Wednesday to consider their verdicts following the six-week trial of a former principal of a Melbourne ultra-Orthodox Jewish girls' school accused of molesting three sisters.

Malka Leifer, 56, has pleaded not guilty in the Victoria state County Court to 27 sexual offenses that were allegedly committed at the Adass Israel School, where she was head of religion and later principal, and at her Melbourne home and at school camps in the rural Victorian towns of Blampied and Rawson between 2003 and 2007.

Prosecutor Justin Lewis had asked the 12 jurors to consider that Leifer, a Tel Aviv-born mother of eight, showed sexual interest in the girls when they were teenage students at the school and later when they became student teachers there. He alleged that Leifer engaged in sexual activities with them and took advantage of their vulnerability and ignorance in sexual matters, and her position of authority.

The sisters had an isolated upbringing in the ultra-Orthodox Jewish community and received no sexual education, the court heard. They were aged around 12, 14, and 16 when Leifer arrived at the school from Israel in 2001.
I'll never forgive the Haredi clan they grew up in for the mental abuse they practically subjected the girls to when they were young. All sane people Down Under, no matter their background, should look in disgust at such insularists for the harm and embarrassment the clan truly is. It remains to be seen if Leifer will be convicted, and what kind of sentence she'll get. Let's hope the jury recognizes the guilt she clearly bears. And she even had the gall to plead "not guilty"? That only compounds the poor image she's achieved. One must wonder, however, if authorities would deal properly with a male offender of a similar background. We must hope they will.
