Rabbinic Clergy Sexual Abuse Goes Mainstream in Hollywood

Jewish Whistleblower says:

The latest episode of ABC's Boston Legal deals peripherally with rabbinic abuse of minors. The latest episode that aired February 6, 2007 deals with a 16-year-old girl that was sexually assaulted by a rabbi. Fortunately, in this TV case, the police were called and the Rabbi reported.

If only our community had as much common sense in "real life".

Every case must be reported to the police. How simple an idea.

The episode will be summarized shortly on the official ABC website at: http://abc.go.com/primetime/bostonlegal/recap/season3/14.html

Episode 3.14 - Selling Sickness [Airing Ferbuary 6]: Shirley meets with 16-year-old Michelle Cabot and Michelle's mother Melanie and uncle Clifford. They claim Michelle was sexually assaulted by a rabbi but are not there to prosecute him, as they had already called the police. Michelle and her father want her to take a new medication nicknamed "the forgetting pill", which would cause her to forget the traumatic event, but the doctors won't give it to her because her mother and uncle are threatening to sue.

I wonder if hollywood would ever do a show about the case of Marc Gafni Mordecai Tendler or even Hershy Worch?
