And he wasn't ostracized for being on TV?
Are there no honest rabbonim around who care about the welfare of the child? Who is protecting the abuser and why?What evidence al pi din is valid in creating a chashash of a person being an abuser? I can see a false accusation of abuse being a powerful tool to control rebbis.
Reb Doniel,I would appreciate it if you could provide me with a source for how to deal with abuse accusations and when they should be believed or how they should be dealt with.
I wrote three books on the subject!the question is how to protect the kids from danger and how public and constant are the accusations.The simple answer is you need a consultation by a therapist who is experienced in these matters and who consults with rabbis to clarify issues.If there is even a possibility of danger to the child and/or there is mandated reporting - then the matter needs to be reported to the police.Even if you call the police or told a supervisor - it doesn't remove your obligation to follow up to make sure the matter was resolved.
Thank you very much
