Ultra-Orthodox Child Abuse Ring Busted In Jerusalem
Ynet is reporting that Jerusalem police arrested three haredi men, ages 42, 45 and 67, for child sexual abuse.
The three men, residents of the same haredi neighborhood, lured and “seduced” dozens of children, all between the ages of 5 and 10, as they returned from studying Torah. The three men took the children home and sexually abused them together. They are suspected of committing indecent assault and sodomy along with sexual abuse.
It appears this had been going on for some time.
Each of the three men denied the charges and will be brought to the Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court for a hearing on extending their remands.
