Brooklyn, December 10, 2012- Kings County District Attorney Charles J. Hynes today announced the conviction of Nechemya Weberman, 54, for sexually abusing a young girl over a period of years.
 
District Attorney Hynes said, “The victim showed great courage to come forward in a very difficult time.  Hopefully, this verdict will lead to the understanding for other women that they can come forward as well.”
 
Weberman was convicted on one count of Course of Sexual Conduct Against a Child in the First Degree, 12 counts of Criminal Sexual Act in the Second Degree, two counts of Criminal Sexual Act in the Third Degree, 18 counts of Sexual Abuse in the Second Degree, 25 counts of Sexual Abuse in the Third Degree, and one count of Endangering the Welfare of a Child.  The top count of Course of Sexual Conduct Against a Child in the First Degree carries a maximum penalty of 25 years in prison.  He faces a total of 117 years.   Weberman was remanded and he will be sentenced before Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice John Ingram on January 9 at 10:00 AM.
 
The victim’s parents hired Weberman, an unlicensed therapist, to provide counseling for their daughter, beginning in 2007, when she was 12. From then, until 2010, Weberman sexually abused the girl multiple times, mostly in his office.
 
The case was prosecuted by Kevin O’Donnell, First Deputy Bureau Chief of the Sex Crimes Bureau; Linda Weinman, Unit Chief of the Crimes Against Children Bureau; and Anthea Bruffee, First Deputy Bureau Chief of the Appeals Bureau. Rhonnie Jaus is Chief of the Sex Crimes/Crimes Against Children Division.

"They better not fool fool around with this kid, her husband or her family."

Even they would not be so foolish to do that. This is an insulting statement - this is like kicking someone when they are down.

Kudos shmarya for you great efforts for helping us from the evil and very dangerous collective punishments from Satmar UTA with their long arms also overseas operating from New York and harming children even as far as Antwerp Belgium.

See the scandal with the Friedman children related to the ID frauds and many others by UTA Satmar and Friedman Family.

Well that's what satmar is all about, fool.

HAHAHA of course they would, these people have no morals, they will likely still harass them despite this warning.

The fact the DA even made this statement speaks volumes for what he thinks Satmar is capable of. All in the name of religion. Sad. Luke

If such a verdict came out in Israel, people would be rioting in the streets.

In the U.S., I imagine they'll just keep very quiet, lick their wounds, and get back to business as usual.

He's probably used to gangs and he was probably thinking of cults, which Satmar Kiryasjoeler and Williamsburger Hasidism seem a lot like to some people.

Kiryasjoeler and Williamsburger Hasidism

This term follows naturally from the Aron Teitelbaum/ Zalman Teitelbaum dispute of a couple of years ago. Was that ever reconciled?

Yes, its open season on the Satmar!

I prayed for miracles and Hynes warned Satmar not to harm the victim and her family. Then again, maybe Satmar's violence against dissenter is so blatant it can't be ignored.

Sam...earlier in this thread you posted the link about the Friedman family and Satmar. Can you or some other knowledgeable observer provide a synopsis and some context to what seems like an important story. Many thanks.

No this is simply Hynes trying to get the heat off of him as to his perceived leniency to the Jews. He too is taking advantage of the open season taking shots at the Satmar.

Mike and Baruch you are fools! (shmarya, are they the same person?)

He is letting them know that if something does happen he won't turn a blind eye. I am almost surprised he is saying this, except that he knows something might happen so he wants to be on record that he wasn't complicit.

Everyone knows the Satmar are the Sodomite Mafia while they march around in their stupid uniforms and pretend to be the princes of Israel. Nobody is going to buy their holier-than-thou horseshit anymore.

Shmarya, congratulations for all your hard work. You are a great journalist and while I occasionally take issue with an article here and there, your efforts to clean up the community are inspiring.

God bless Charles Hynes!

charles hynes should be tougher with chabad as he is with the satmar .

hynes should not give in to chabad pressure and act like a scarridy cat .

i can't wait for him to go and be replaced by a tough DA who enforce the law , just the way he is supposed to.

What's needed is a police guard around the girl and her family - a good sized one with lots of crime-scene tape and all the trimmings - and plenty of news photogs around to spread the word and make it clear that that's what's needed to keep the religious goon squad at a safe distance.

Moshe Aryeh Friedman is a perennial scammer. His whole anti-Zionist shtick was an attempt to open a kehilla so he could get his grubby hands on Shoah restitution moneys.

I don't even want to waste my time reading what this freak, who indeed is related to Moshe Friedman, the gabbe of Satmar-Willy, is up to and who he is accusing of what.

Moshe Aryeh Friedman and Shmarya Rosenberg are very similar - just out there looking for attention. Friedman is truly sleazy whereas Shmarya is just a laughable, lonesome loser.

The piece written by "Sam" is probably written by Friedman himself - rying to drum up attention for his cause.

you can only fuck with that many people Friedman! Go home to Iran.

Are there any other child molesters and rapists out there right now that are currently committing such crimes as we speak? Are they pissing in their pants now out of fear?

Just wondering.
