Prominent Baltimore Haredi Lawyer Ducks Prison On Sex Assault Charge
Shmarya Rosenberg • FailedMessiah.com
Isaac Neuberger (of the Ner Israel Yeshiva Neubergers) was originally charged with a fourth-degree sex offense after he allegedly sexually accosted a 25-year-old man in a washroom.
Neuberger entered a not guilty plea last March.
A two sources familiar with the case told FailedMessiah.com that a plea bargain was made allowing Neuberger to plead guilty to simple assault – not to a sex offense.
Neuberger entered that guilty plea yesterday, after which the judge immediately tossed out the conviction and ordered Neuberger to serve 2 years of unsupervised probation and pay court costs. A statement of facts – i.e., what Neuberger admitted to doing that day in his law firm's washroom – was also read into the record. But Neuberger will likely find a way to have that record sealed.
