GOP liaison to the chareidi community Yossi Gestetner defends those members of the ultra-Orthodox community accused of sexual abuse because "In the court of public opinion, the community is bad and we didn't get a fair chance." He said Hasidic activism on behalf of the accused comes from a desire to support the American legal doctrine of "innocent until proven guilty," and that "many people in the community, specifically in the Hasidic community, think that this is just a talking point, rather than an active ideal."
