Rabbi Nechemya Weberman's Sentence Reduced By More Than Half To 50 Years
Shmarya Rosenberg • FailedMessiah.com

Rabbi Nechemya Weberman's 103-year sentence for his three-year multiple-times-weekly course of sexual abuse of a young hasidic girl that began when the girl was 12-years-old has been automatically reduced to the statutory maximum of 50 years in state prison.

His earliest possible release date (barring a pardon, commutation or an appeal victory) is October 16, 2055 – seven years, one month, and several days less than the maximum 50 years. (I.e., a 1/7 reduction – if he behaves well and meets certain benchmarks.)

Weberman would be 97-years-old at his earliest release date.

The top charge Weberman was convicted on, carrying out a course of sexual abuse against a child, is a Class B felony that carries a maximum sentence of 25-years-in state prison. (You'll see how this comes into play if you read the NY State Penal Code excerpt posted below.)

Weberman is currently housed in the Downstate Correctional Facility in Fishkill, New York.

Here is the relevant section of the New York State Penal Code:

(vi) Notwithstanding subparagraphs (i) and (iv) of this paragraph, the
aggregate maximum term of consecutive sentences, all of which are
indeterminate or all of which are determinate sentences, imposed for the
conviction of three or more violent felony offenses committed prior to
the time the person was imprisoned under any of such sentences and one
of which is a class B violent felony offense, shall, if it exceeds fifty
years, be deemed to be fifty years;
  (vii) Notwithstanding subparagraphs (ii), (iii) and (v) of this
paragraph, where the aggregate maximum term of two or more consecutive
sentences, one or more of which is a determinate sentence and one or
more of which is an indeterminate sentence, and where such sentences are
imposed for the conviction of three or more violent felony offenses
committed prior to the time the person was imprisoned under any such
sentences and one of which is a class B violent felony offense, the
following rules shall apply:
  (A) if the aggregate maximum term of the determinate sentence or
sentences exceeds fifty years, the defendant shall be deemed to be
serving a determinate sentence of fifty years.
  (B) if the aggregate maximum term of the determinate sentence or
sentences is less than fifty years, the defendant shall be deemed to be
serving an indeterminate sentence the maximum term of which shall be
deemed to be fifty years. In such instances, the minimum sentence shall
be deemed to be twenty-five years or six-sevenths of the term or
aggregate maximum term of the determinate sentence or sentences,
whichever is greater.
  (viii) Notwithstanding any provision of this subdivision to the
contrary where a person is serving two or more consecutive sentences,
one or more of which is an indeterminate sentence and one or more of
which is a determinate sentence, and if he would be eligible for a
reduction provision pursuant to this subdivision if the maximum term or
aggregate maximum term of the indeterminate sentence or sentences were
added to the term or aggregate maximum term of the determinate sentence
or sentences, the person shall be deemed to be eligible for the
applicable reduction provision and the rules set forth in this
subdivision shall apply.

See how Hashem is protecting his true believers!!! I knew he was going to get a reduced sentence. Now maybe all the vicious accusers will realize that he was being set up by a miserable harlot!!!

Nebech for him for being stupid and nebech for her. letting her self for 3 years... she could have stopped it .... by not going back to him... instead causeing so much shame what a tragedy but why 50 years

They were ashamed of giving 103 years; it smelled of Antisemitism. So lets see he is 50 something, he'll be out with good behavior in 35 years.. so he'll still be able to do a little Florida...

"Harlot", "she could have stopped it" and "but why 50 years" Ignorant, undereducated cretins! (Oh, undereducated fool Google cretin so you get the meaning.) He raped a child ! When will you get it? I can not wait for Yossi's spin on this. Sad. Luke.

Odds are he'll die in prison which under the circumstances is all anyone can ask for. 50 years is a life sentence. It's not as if he'd have served 103 years.

Downstate is a classification center where Weberman will be assessed, evaluated by staff and sent to the prison best suited for his safety, prison ease and of course, ability to conform to his alleged religious morays - with the exception of serving up girls to be "counseled." He will not be a management problem.

Bye bye forever Webbie!

He might still be able to get a reduced sentence if he made genuine tshuvah.

But to the frumma, they are never wrong and the goyim are always wrong.

Bubba will keep him so distracted, the 50 years will pass in no time.

doesn't anyone else have an issue with the prosecutor seeking double the sentence they wanted because they knew it would be cut in half later? and isn't' it appallingly coercive to offer a 5-year plea when a conviction would lead to 50 or 100 years.

I do not ay this not out of pity for Weberman, but concern about due process generally, especially for defendants who come from poor backgrounds and lack the financial wherewithal to put up a proper defense, and who have to rely on overstretched, understaffed public defenders.

Good points about the harlot that passes for justice in the US but not about a public defender in this case.

The angels of St Mary's very publicly raised half a million bucks to defend Weberman in a clear message of support to him and opposition to those who might consider reporting crimes in the future.

@ Roley Poley Yoiley See how Hashem is protecting his true believers!!" Did you meant ...true RAPIST? Go figure, in your myth book called torah (pun intended) your sick god allowed little girls to marry and also inbreeding was a common practice. Go figure!

"I knew he was going to get a reduced sentence." Yes, any one who could read the code would have figured that out.

"Now maybe all the vicious accusers will realize that he was being set up by a miserable harlot!!!" No, we have figured out how sick this guy is, and you too, thanks!


@shimon...aka moron...

"letting her self for 3 years... she could have stopped it .... by not going back to him..." Obviously you have no clue of how easily manipulated a 12 year old kid can be. Of course, since according to your fairy tale torah, a girl achieves maturity at age 12, it does not surprise me your level of stupidity correlates with that of the same idiots who wrote your fairy tale book.

Two enthusiastic thumbs down to you two clowns, and two enthusiastic middle fingers up as well.


"See how Hashem is protecting his true believers!!!."

Hmm, G-d would have sprung him free instead of commuting his sentence from one full century to only half an one.

Just statements then implies that the US DOJ is more powerful than the almighty himself.

Wavering in your faith?.

"A miserable harlot!!!."

But still holding strong to your Extremist Chareidi misogynistic views, as least. =/

"she could have stopped it .... by not going back to him... instead causeing so much shame what a tragedy "

Yes, the shame, the shame of a young girl forcing a Man twice her body mass to commit sin. Him, powerless to her, brought down to the ground by her frail shape, him crying for not being able to report this rape to his fellow Rabbi for fear his family would be persecuted, thought less of a man,...

Such a shameful tragedy... you missed the day G-d was passing brains around, you putz. /=P

Not sure who is being sarcastic and who isn't. Can you please indicate at the end of each comment.

BEWARE
He will be out at age 97 with the proper brachos from his rov he will still have 23 years to roam the streets of willy to ASSault again!
Fucken pervert

You implication that a 12 year old girl has the wherewithal to stop the abuse is vile, and you showed yourself for all of us that you are a despicable person. Why didn’t you just crawl back to VIN that is where you belong.

I love your play on “The angels of St Mary's”

Sorry, forgot this:

SET SARCASM_FLAG=TRUE

Better?

@Roley Poley Yoiley

Some of us got that you were being sarcastic...........

Weberman: But, your honor, at my age I can't possibly serve 50 years.

Judge: That's all right. Just serve as much as you can.

Williamsburg needs to take up a collection of schmaltz. He'll need it as lubrication.

A Texas 'needle' [in the arm] would be merciful

Isa from Texas

Given the esteem which kiddie rapists are held to in prison (about the same level as snitches), he will die in prison. After learning firsthand what he put that poor little girl (and who knows how many others) through.

There has been either one or two of these announced every week for the past month. Is it just me or is Monsey and NS experiencing an epidemic? I guess there is going to be a plethora of fundraising events going on. Luke.

One thing I can't understand is this: According to the victim, she went for counseling 2-3 times a week for 4 hours a session. Her father paid Weberman $150 an hour. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

According to the above numbers, each day cost him $600. Let's say it was twice a week, which means that every week cost him $1,200.

To me, these numbers don't add up. She says she went to Weberman for 2 or 3 years (I don't recall) Will you tell me that her father paid that much? ($1200 x 52 = $62,400)

Will you tell me that her parents willingly let her go that many hours to Weberman and paid for it? And if they didn't pay for it, why did they let her go that much?

Something doesn't add up and someone's lying here.

I think we should make a protest about this! What's the point of giving a 103 year sentence if it's reduced to 50 just like that?

I don't understand - where's Nachum Rosenberg, Boorey Deutsch, Yankel Horowitz, the victim itself?

Something doesn't add up and someone's lying here.

Stop sockpuppeting or I'll delete your comments.

Choose one screen name – or, better yet, your actual legal name – and use that.

Past that, you really need to get an education.

Weberman did not dispute the payments at trial.

getthosemolesters-- This is a typical hassidishe behaviour, when they see you have money they divise methods how to get youre money,as the saying goes a fool and his money soon depart,the girls father was is a fool for falling for her treatment,of course who wouldn"t when you live among them,they are leeches waiting for someone to make a little mistake then they pound on you .

getthosemolesters, don't you know only goyim pay retail?

Vovnik's statement is hilarious- but let's see if I can't go him one better (and, as I have said before, I used to do criminal defense)

Judge: "I'm going to have to sentence you to life imprisonment."

Weberman (or someone just like him): "But your Honor...I can't do life!"

Judge: "If you can't do life...just do the best you can."
