Charges Dropped Against Innocent Man Charged By Former DA With Intimidating Sex Abuse Victim

The criminal contempt charges against one of the three men who allegedly tweeted photos of the victim of Nechemya Weberman from the courtroom during Weberman’s trial 16 months ago has been dropped because the man, Lemon Juice, is a friend of the victim and never tweeted any photos, the Daily News reported.
These facts were reported 16 months ago on FailedMessiah.com and elsewhere, but were ignored by then-Brooklyn-DA Charles J. Hynes.
The two other men charged, Joseph Fried and Yona Weissman, are not friends of the victim – a fact Hynes’ prosecutors also knew – and appear to have tweeted the photos.
Prosecutors eventually were given proof that the tweets didn't not come from Lemon Juice’s phone. But they ignored it.
They later reportedly got proof that the tweets came from a Twitter account linked to Moses Klein, a personal driver of the Satmar Rebbe – a position once held by Weberman. Prosecutors ignored that information, as well, and former DA Charles J. Hynes did not drop the charges against Lemon Juice.
The Daily News reports that a resolution of the case “was further delayed to allow new district Attorney Kenneth Thompson to familiarize himself with the facts before tossing a closely watched case.”
The truth, however, appears to be that Hynes prosecutors had more than enough information to drop the charges against Lemon Juice many months before last fall’s election. But they didn’t do it.
The new Brooklyn DA Kenneth Thompson dropped the charges after his prosecutors evaluated the case and the evidence.
Lemon Juice’s lawyer, Leopold Gross, reportedly indicated they will sue Klein for malicious prosecution and conspiracy.
The charges against Fried and Weissman have not been dropped and their cases will reportedly forward.
