Brooklyn Prosecutors Drop Charges in Ultra-Orthodox Sex Abuse Case

Prosecutors dropped all charges against a group of men who were accused of sexually abusing a young Brooklyn ultra-Orthodox woman for eight years.

The Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office dropped the charges on Tuesday against four Crown Heights men accused of raping and forcing the woman to serve as a prostitute in their neighborhood since she was 13, according to reports.

A Brooklyn judge dismissed the case after questions arose about whether prosecutors withheld evidence suggesting the men were not guilty.

In addition, the accuser, who has a history of mental illness, apparently retracted her story in April, which caused the case to crumble.

Following the dismissal of the charges, the father of the victim released a statement criticizing the district attorney’s decision.
