I had never heard of Eugene Gold. I did some googling and found that he was the DA who prosecuted Son of Sam, David Berkowitz.


why? maybe payoffs, prestige, purity of brand, out of sight out of mind.


I can't understand why, but the Gerer Chassidim have put incredible pressure on all the powers that be to protect this molester.

More than say, Satmar put re Jerry Brown et al, Pupa put re Daskalowitz, etc. etc.

Does anyone know why? The Gerers are supposedly very frum when it comes to any type of sexual deviancy (even straight) so this is a big puzzle.

Maybe if Lesher succeeds in getting the documents under the FOI act, the genie will come out of the bottle never to be put back again. Just like when the Catholic church imploded on this issue.

I wish he gets the information why the coverup.


Lesher is a jerk. He is a cruel person and an outright liar. He has teamed up for years with another winner, Amy Neustein and has hounded an innocent child and her father for years. I wish him all the worst.

Actually, the DA's office encourages rabbinical leaders to work with the DA to ensure that the Orthodox pedophiles are protected and never get a day of jail time.

Here is a rough list with docket number from earlier lists. Some information may not be up to date/accurate. Charges may have been dropped, pleas made etc. Some chages may be earlier than 2009.

henna white is as responsible as charlie hynes


I remember eugene gold very well i could not beleive it when i heard about his rape of a 10 year old if i remember he moved to israel is that correct.


At Miramonte Elementary School in Los Angeles they've removed the entire staff at the school because of their failures to protect children.

The same should be done at the Brooklyn DAs office. We have zero confidence in the entire office to protect any child.


What everyone seems to be missing is that the Brooklyn DA's office continues to do what it has done for decades, routinely handling abuse cases in the Orthodox community so that offenders do not serve jail time, do not have publicity and, since the establishment of sex offender registries, ensure that Orthodox sex offenders avoid being registered (or at least put on the public registry).

This is how it was done with Rabbi Yehuda Kolko recently just as it was done with Rabbi Lewis (Lipa) Brenner a decade earlier. No jail time no requirement to register on the public sex offender registry. Nothing has changed. The DA's office routinely takes advantaged of the families of abused children and pushes them to accept these sorts of outrageous deals claiming it is to "protect" the survivors/victims.

Moreover, the Brooklyn DA's office was run for 13 years by District Attorney Eugene Gold, one of Hynes' predecessors, who was charged with raping the 10 year daughter of another district attorney. Gold confessed to a lesser charge of fondling and agreed to undergo psychiatric treatment to avoid prosecution and jail time. This is the routine way of handling abuse cases in the general community for decades and continues to be the routine way abuse cases are dealt with in the Orthodox community.

Basically, former Brooklyn DA Gold got the same sort of deal that has been (and still is) routinely handed out by the DA's office in Brooklyn.

We need to out all those involved with these deals and once and for all clean up the District Attorney's office in Brooklyn. We need to publicize the names of the sex offenders and the fixers both in and out of the DA's office who protect them.

These deals protect only the abusers and put children in our community at risk.

someone who knows

Lesher is an unemployed idiot who lives off of social assistance.

He is a fool who never succeeds at his half-assed attempts to do things because he never thinks them through and never does his research properly.
