Orthodox Jewish Counselor Nechemya Weberman guilty

Well that’s a mouthful. I started off writing the headline as Rabbi Nechemya Weberman, but later changed it to Jewish Counselor during a fact check session. It appears that Weberman is a self-taught counselor too. Now we can simply refer to him by his new title. Pedophile Weberman.

The Brooklyn courtroom was silent as the foreman said jurors had found Nechemya Weberman guilty of 59 counts, including sustained sex abuse of a child, endangering the welfare of a child and sexual abuse. He faces 25 years in prison on the top charge and may get more time when he is sentenced on Jan. 9.

The 54-year-old defendant looked down as the verdict was announced and glanced briefly back at his family, who held hands, as he was handcuffed and led from the courtroom. Some of the accusers' supporters smiled quietly. The girl's mother, who was not in the courtroom at the time, said later she was weeping tears of joy, according to her friend.

The article goes on to describe Weberman’s repeated sexual assault of a girl starting when she was 12 and ending when she was 15.

The girl, who is now married, testified for four days, chronicling abuse that she said lasted for three years. Weberman would take off her clothes and touch her, force her to perform oral sex and re-enact scenes from porn films, she said. She didn't know what to do; he was a well-respected member of the community, and she was "a piece of dirt," she said.

We call men like Weberman scumbags. In prison they are known as bitches. I hope the victim can take some comfort in that.
