• ‘Get Case’: Lubavitcher Sentanced to House-Arrest, Avoids Prison

    Previously, two leaders of the group of nine were sentenced to four years in federal prison for conspiracy to kidnapping and torture. Today, the court ruled that the Lubavitcher, Rabbi Sholom Ber Shuchat, will not sit in prison • Full Story

    In a closely watched case widely covered by the mainstream press, a Crown Heights resident and Lubavitcher, Rabbi Sholom Ber Shuchat, who pleaded guilty to charges of conspiracy to kidnap and torture was sentenced to six-months of house-arrest, today, Thursday, by a federal district court judge.

    He was one of nine, an organized group of Orthodox Rabbis who accepted money in exchange for beating husbands who are Halachically required to divorce their wives by a Rabbinic Court decision, but who refused to so. For a paltry sum, a woman can hire their services to extort her husband by severe torture, until he agrees to give the Get.

    The group was busted by an FBI plant who recorded one such transaction on a secret video recorder, while pretending to be a woman in distress and in need of their ‘services’ to secure a Get.

    All nine pleaded guilty to the charges. The maximum sentence for a conspiracy kidnapping charge is life in prison and a $250,000 fine

    Previously, two leaders of the group were sentenced to four years in federal prison. Today, the New Jersey court ruled that the Lubavitcher Dayan, who played a much smaller role in the crimes, will be sentenced to only six-months of house-arrest.

    1. Very cruel system, jail: separates families – what did the wife/children do? This can create all types of stress and family problems. The children probably suffer the most. Reduces income, etc. Yes, Americans, KNOW you have a vicious and cruel, arrogant and backwards government that is also busy aborting cute little souls, by the MILLIONS! And ISIS is cruel! Ha! Flogging is MUCH MORE HUMANE. But those who think flogging is ‘cruel & unusual punishment’ think they’re better than criminals. Of course, they’re never been tempted to commit a crime. So they ignore those in jail an consign them to oblivion, never visiting them, caring little for their fellow American and human being — snobs galore! (I don’t have to visit prisoners because I DON’T believe in jail. I might visit out of humanitarian feelings.) Oh, wise Americans…how much more will you descend! Turn to ‘The 7 Noahide Laws’ and stop America’s decline. (I, Bruce V. Hoffinger attended The NYC Public School System).
