Nearly 10 months since ultra-Orthodox Jewish counselor Nechemya Weberman was convicted of sexual abuse, his victims are still being harassed and receiving death threats.
Nechemya Weberman, the ultra-Orthodox Jewish counselor convicted by a Brooklyn jury of 59 counts of sexually abusing a teenage girl, was sentenced today to 103 years in prison.
The News reports that Nechemya Weberman, the ultra-Orthodox Jewish counselor found guilty of sexually abusing a teen, allegedly sexually abused at least 10 more teens and married women who he counseled.
An outspoken advocate for sex abuse victims in the ultra-Orthodox Satmar Jewish community in South Williamsburg was sprayed in the face with bleach yesterday. He says it was an act of retaliation for his whistleblowing.
A controversial Ultra-Orthodox Jewish leader known for advocating on behalf of victims of sexual abuse was sprayed in the face with bleach this afternoon on Roebling Street in Williamsburg.
The victim said that Weberman burned her with a lighter.
The powerful figure in the Satmar community was remanded into custody.
"What’s the most we can say today?" Weberman's defense attorney asked. "Child sexual abuser. And it is an awful thing. But the wrongful accusation of a child sexual abuser is even worse."
Weberman was adamant that he "never ever" touched the alleged victim, who saw him for counseling during a three year period starting when she was 12. But he did admit to defrauding his own charity.
"Her modesty was not like the other girls'" he said, referring to the victim going to class with the button of her blouse over her throat undone, and wore stockings that weren't thick enough.
The Ultra-Orthodox mother of a teenage girl claims she was pressured to apologize to the man now on trial for sexually abusing her.
The now 17-year-old victim told jurors in addition to forcing her to perform oral sex on him, he also showed her pornography and made her reenact the sex acts during their frequent counseling sessions.
