According to the complaint, Hayout abused his position in order to make sexual advances at the complainant, including kissing her against her will. The woman complained to her supervisors, who then took the matter to the police.
Despite Hayout's denial, police believe there is basis to the allegations. Hayout was instructed to stay away from the woman and police have advised the State Prosecution to file an indictment against the rabbi.
Advocate Uri Kenan spoke on behalf of Rabbi Hayout, saying: "Everything we have will be delivered in the prosecution's hearing. All I can say is that the rabbi denies any criminal offense."
