Orthodox Jewish leader accused of statutory rape

Jack Kemp

I don't know what happened in "the good old days" because people were ashamed to talk about such topics then, even in the 1950s. I recall my mother commenting about a wayward relative and jokingly saying that the story could be made into a movie. She then joked that it could be a Woody Allen movie but then dismissed that idea as something too low-life for Woody to be involved in. If my mother had lived a few more years, she would not have said that Woody was too "upstanding" to direct such a low-life themed movie plot.

But being a major sinner and hiding behind a formal religious position is not limited to any one Judeo-Christian faith. In a bitter irony, this Hassid's organization is a police auxillary group called the "Shomrim" in Hebrew which means "Guardians."

Shomrim leader accused of raping teen caught on recorded call with victim: DA

Jacob "Yankyā€¯ Daskal, 59, who helped found the neighborhood Boro Park Shomrim patrol group some 30 years ago, knew his victim prior to the alleged attacks, prosecutors said.

The major campaign donor pleaded not guilty at his Friday arraignment in Brooklyn Supreme Court and quickly posted $75,000 bond.
