A rabbi is in trouble with the law, accused of molesting a child and now police are searching for more possible victims
Miami Beach Police have arrested Steve Karro, 55, who was a substitute Rabbi at Shaare Ezra Sephardic Synagogue Congregation. According to his arrest report, Karro “intentionally touched/grabbed the buttocks” of an 11-year old girl. The report also states that he kissed her along her neck after having her sit on his lap. Police said that the victim has known Karro for five years. Karro gave the girl candy and “told her not to tell her mother about what had happened.” Once he was arrested, police said, Karro denied the allegations but said that he touched the girl’s buttocks for a “‘cleansing’ as she was exhibiting negative energy.” Karro is charged with lewd and lascivious molestation of a child under 12 and lewd and lascivious conduct on a child under 16.
