Earlier today in a New Jersey federal courtroom, Aaron “Ari” Glucksman admitted to impersonating an attorney – apparently his father-in-law Arthur Golden – and admitted to being part of one of Eliyahu Weinstein’s frauds, a source close to the case told Failedmessiah.com early this afternoon.
Glucksman also named Fred “Fishel” Todd as a willing conspirator with Weinstein to carry out Weinstein’s fraud involving Florida apartments. Todd also allegedly wired money to conspirator Aaron Mushel and others.
Glucksman was sentenced today to 52 months in federal prison to run concurrently with his previous wire and bank fraud conspiracy sentence, meaning Glucksman will be in federal prison for at most 4 1/3 years. He will also have to pay $1.2 million in restitution.
Todd’s information still appears to be sealed.
Alex Schleider also pleaded guilty to involvement in Weinstein's fraud and will be be sentenced in September. He agreed to voluntary restitution of $600,00 and allegedly admitted that Weinstein worked with Moshe Lehrfeld of the Greenberg Taurig law firm (and Greenberg Taurig itself) to illegally take money out of escrow to essentially lauder it for Weinstein while stealing it from its rightful owners. He could get as much as 20 years in federal prison.
