An 50-year-old haredi resident of Beit Shemesh, Israel was indicted today in the Jerusalem District Court for allegedly committing a string of more than 100 sexual assaults over a four-plus-year period against a young female relative, NRG and Behadrei Haredim reported.
The sexual assaults allegedly took place once every week between 2009-2013 at. When the other family members were asleep, the man would enter the girl’s bed and lie next to her while other childen were asleep in the same room. He would then insert his fingers into her vagina as he stroked the girls chest, thighs, buttocks and genitals with his other hand.
Over the years, the girl says she repeatedly asked the man to stop but he ignored her.
In April 2013 she told her school administration about the abuse and the school arranged for her to sleep in another home away from the man.
When the criminal indictment against the man was filed, the prosecution asked the court to remand the man until the legal proceedings against him were completed. The court noted the alleged offenses establish a reasonable suspicion that the man would be a danger to public safety, and therefore established the grounds for the state’s remand request, which was granted.
