Following up on Jeffs story

Unrelated to the Jeffs story in many ways, but having a common Con Law theme in my head, is this recent ABC News story of Mary Byler. Raised in an Amish family, she was repeatedly raped by her brothers. Unable to find help within her family or community, she went to the authorities outside the Amish community, which is apparently a worse transgression than rape and child abuse.
