Chaim Deutsch, the president and founder of Flatbush Shomrim, objects to the candidacy of defense attorney David Storobin, who is running against Lew Fidler in a special election for a New York State Senate seat, because Storobin represents accused pedophiles and rapists, and because of this…
…text taken from Storobin's website:
The public has strong feelings about sex crimes and sex offenders, especially those involving children. Unlike other crimes, even unsubstantiated accusations of sex crimes usually mean being convicted in the court of public opinion until you prove yourself innocent. More than in any other criminal case, it is important that your criminal defense lawyer is experienced and knowledgeable about the special considerations of sex crime cases.
Child sex crimes are among the most serious sex crimes with first degree rape carrying potentially a 25-year prison sentence. Even the lowest level rape (third degree) carries a potential 4-year sentence. And yet child molestation cases remain among the most frequently mischarged crimes against innocent people because children imagine things that they heard about others to have happened against them. The media, of course, usually gets involved and crucifies the defendant before any of the facts are known.
It is easy to accuse someone a sex crime, and then difficult to disprove. In a case involving accusations of statutory rape, an innocent act can be perceived wrongly or the child can just imagine something that simply did not happen. Scientific literature by doctors and psychologists explains why children make up these cases. They aren't bad kids. But children live in a different world from adults. The things they imagine - the boogey-man under the bed, a stone monument waving to them - may seem funny, until children hear about sex on TV and imagine that it happened to them.
That is just one type of sex crime. In cases of forcible rape, the alleged victim may just be making an accusation because of greed, revenge or another emotion.

Storobin is lying.
Children rarely make up sex crimes. The actual statistics in medical literature and criminal justice literature show that false allegations made by children are extremely rare.
You can hear Chaim Deutsch from Flatbush Shomrim attack Storobin starting at about 12 minutes into the audio recording.
Interestingly, Deutsch refers to rapes that happen "daily" that the community doesn't know about – apparently because Shomrim, the NYPD and the Brooklyn D.A. hush up the crimes.
