GOAT GUILTY ON ALL CHARGES

There was no victory for the Goat today. The Goat was convicted of four counts of risk of injury to a minor. The Goat faces a maximum of 80 years in State prison

Yesterday I was convinced that the Goat would walk away free today. After watching the jury deliberate this morning I became convinced that the Goat would be convicted. The jury handed Judge Alander a note asking the same question they had asked yesterday. They wanted to know the years Dr. DeRosa worked at the Yeshiva. They didn’t want to know about anything else that they had asked about yesterday. I figured that there was one juror who was hung up on Dr. DeRosa. I thought that the evidence was overwhelmingly against the Goat. I figured that the majority of jurors wanted to convict and that there was one or two holdouts. The majority had to convince the holdouts to convict. It was only a matter of time before there would be a verdict of guilty.

At about 12:30 PM the jury returned a verdict of guilty on all four charges of risk of injury to a minor. After the forewoman of the jury stated “GUILTY” four times, the Goat looked at his Ewe, shook his head and then looked away. The Ewe sat in silence. The Goat and the Ewe had prayed all morning. Their prayers were not answered. The marshals surrounded the Goat. They put him in cuffs. They took him outside the Courtroom and into a side room. Willie the Dow asked Judge Alander to poll the jury. Each individual juror was asked whether they voted to convict. Sentencing was set for November 20th. The Goat faces a maximum of 80 years in prison. The Goat did not look happy. The Dow crashed. It was Black Wednesday.

State’s Attorney Wilinsky asked Judge Alander to increase the Goat’s appearance bond now that the Goat was a convicted felon. The Dow argued that the Goat never attempted to leave the compound and has lived in New Haven for 40 years. Wilinsky asked the Dow whether the Goat had an Israeli passport. The Dow said he would find out. Judge Alander increased the Goat’s bond to $750K. Judge Alander told the Dow that he can come back in the afternoon for a bond hearing in order to discuss electronic monitoring and other conditions of the Goat’s release.

The Goat was locked up for an hour or so in a holding cell in the Courthouse and then appeared at the bond hearing in the afternoon. The Goat paid a bondsman ten percent of the $750K and was fitted for an ankle bracelet. The Goat will have electronic monitoring and be confined to his home in the compound. He will be allowed to go to a shul approved by Probation and allowed to visit his attorneys office and his doctors. The Dow asked Judge Alander if the Goat can go to Beth Israel Shul in Onset MA for Rosh Hashana and the Jewish holidays. Beth Israel was Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik’s summer Shul. The Dow argued that the Goat has been spending Shabbos in Onset lately and that it is hard to get a minyan in New Haven. Judge Alander told the Dow that the Ewe can help him round up a minyan here in New Haven. Request to travel to Onset for Yom Tovim DENIED.

When States Attorney Wilensky argued for electronic monitoring the Ewe mumbled “Anti-Semite” in the courtroom. At least the Ewe didn’t call her a “SHAYGETZ.” Guys in Otisville prison called me a self hating Jew all the time, which never bothered me. If they really hated me they called me a “SHAYGETZ.” Attorney Wilensky should not feel insulted when the Ewe called her an Anti-Semite. Wilensky should pity the Ewe, the Goat will be locked up with her on home confinement with an ankle bracelet all the time. Could you imagine being locked up with the Goat 24/7?

Judge Alander indicated that the Goat was a flight risk. The States Attorney argued that Orthodox Jewish child molesters tend to flee to Israel. The Dow objected to the electronic monitoring on the Goats hooves on Saturdays on the grounds it would violate the Sabbath. Objection OVERRULED.

I tried to interview a few jurors but was unsuccessful. Two of the female jurors were in tears hugging each other as they walked down the street outside the courthouse. I followed them over to a local restaurant where they all ate lunch together. I noticed that one of the alternate jurors joined them. I went into the bar and asked if I could speak with them, but they appeared very tired and told me that it was a very difficult case and they needed some time to unwind and relax and didn’t want to talk about it. As I left I overheard one of them remark that he was impressed with the performance of the Dow. The Dow rallied and shot up 100 points, after suffering a huge crash with the guilty verdict. I also overheard the jurors mention Avi Hack’s name. I have a feeling that had Avi Hack testified the guilty verdict would have come much sooner. The attorneys were able to drag right wing black hat Haradi Rabbi Notis all the way from Lancaster PA, and poor old Dr. DeRosa from Southbury, yet the key witnesses, the missing pieces to the puzzle, the missing links, Avi Hack, Dov Greer and Ezi Greer, were mentioned throughout the trial yet were AWOL.

The Goat will be confined to his home with an ankle bracelet for at least two years while he files and then argues his appeal. If the Goat is given permission to make a minyan at the compound his recruits may wonder why he is wearing an ankle bracelet. I wonder if the Goat will take his pants off over his ankle bracelet or under his ankle bracelet. The Goat will be allowed to have minors in the compound, as the charges of sexual assault were dismissed so the Goat will not have to register as a sex offender. The Goat can rebuilt his compound and call himself “The Ankle Bracelet Rebbe.”

In closing argument the State made a compelling argument that Eli Mirlis was unable to report the molestation and abuse to Dov Greer, Ezi Greer and Avi Hack. 14 year old Eli Mirlis felt that these adults knew what was going on and would have done nothing to stop it if he reported the abuse.  This verdict is long overdue, but unfortunately the enablers who protect abusers and pedophiles never face justice.  I have reported on this case in my blog since 2016.  I do not get any personal pleasure when Mr. Greer, or anyone else for that matter, goes to jail, as I have spent 18 months in Federal prison myself and I would not wish incarceration on my worst enemy.  But Mr. Greer presents a physical danger to others and should be in jail, regardless of his age.  After speaking with numerous child sexual assault victims, who reached out to me, they express more anger towards the adults who protected and enabled pedophiles like Mr. Greer or decades, than the actual abuser himself.  I hope that this highly publicized verdict will give others who have been abused the strength to come forward.  As for other pedophiles, enablers and protectors of abusers, beware of Larry Noodles, I will hunt you down, and get you locked up just like the Goat. Make my day SHAYGETZ!

We’re slogging on, from 516 Ellsworth Ave, Noodles has finally been vindicated with the guilty verdict. Yechi Noodles! Moshiach Now!

He Sexually Assaulted, He Tampered with Witnesses, He Attempted Scare Tactics – 8 Years

Man who sexually assaulted young family member sentenced to 8 years

A Brooklyn man who admitted to sexually assaulting a 10-year-old family member was sentenced to 8 years in prison Wednesday, but not before the woman he preyed on confronted him over the years of abuse.

“He has absolutely no morals,” Samuel Israel’s now-grown victim told the packed courtroom, as her abuser hung his head at the defense table, avoiding eye contact.

“He stole my innocence, and my childhood. I was 10-years-old at the time he started to sexually abuse me. He groomed me to the point where I didn’t know it was wrong or, at 10-years-old, how sick it was,” she stated.

The woman, who is now married with two children, said Israel molested her until she was 16, taking her on trips with his family and buying her silence with lavish gifts. She told Judge Matthew D’Emic she felt alienated from her peers, because while they were talking about school or their weekend plans, Israel “was having oral sex with me.”

“I felt like it was my fault,” she said “I felt dirty.”

Israel, who declined to speak before sentencing, pleaded guilty to charges of criminal sex act and witness tampering in July in exchange for the lesser sentence.

He also confessed to hiring onetime reality TV gumshoe Vincent Parco to try to scare his victim out of taking the stand.

Bnei Brak Parents too Afraid to Report that their Children are Being Molested

A Bnei Brak Teacher Molests Children but Parents are Too Afraid to React

Last night Israeli Channel 2 broadcasted another horrifying story from Bnei Brak, where a number of parents believe that one of the teachers has been sexually abusing their children for a several years. When approached, the principal confirmed that the suspect “strokes children – it’s true, no doubt about it.”

Nevertheless, the parents are frightened to take the matter further. Unfortunately, due to the culture of silence in their community, not one of these parents has so far been willing to approach the police to make a formal complaint.

One parent was recorded anonymously. He told how, “My wife said to me, ‘Don’t do it. You’ll pay a heavy price. Why are you getting involved in this story?’”

“Three years now L is raping children and everybody’s silent! Is this Torah education?!” the parent added.

Racheli Roshgold of Lo Tishtok, an NGO which combats sexual violence in the Haredi community, said, “I have personally witnessed the absolute fear that reigns within this Chassidic sect. More people were in touch with me, but they adamantly refuse to be revealed, they’re not willing to go to the police, despite my attempts to persuade them. And they also explain with great pain why they are unable to speak to the police.”

The voice of another parent with a child in the school was also broadcast anonymously: “There’s nothing we can do, we’re frightened, we have nowhere else to send the children, if not this school. And they threatened us that if we go to the police or co-operate with the investigations, then they’ll kick us out of the system.”

CHILD VICTIMS ACT – Legislation and Justice – SIGNATURE REQUESTED

Houses of worship and a person’s experience of their faith should be free of sexual abuse.

Shockingly, when victims of child sex abuse by religious leaders and other perpetrators come forward to seek justice and stop abusers from causing more harm, they are blocked by current New York State law. New York ranks among the very worst in the nation — alongside Alabama, Michigan and Mississippi — for how the courts and criminal justice system treat survivors of child sex abuse.
Mental health experts know it can take decades for a victim of this abuse to overcome the fear, shame, and trauma to be able to come forward to confront their abuser, but our current law allows survivors of abuse to pursue criminal or civil justice only until the age of 23 — a statute of limitations of, in some cases, only five years.
A bill called the Child Victims Act can change that at the upcoming session. It will extend or eliminate the statute of limitations so victims come forward and perpetrators can be prosecuted, helping victims get justice and taking unknown abusers off the streets. April and May are critical months for clergy to demand that officials introduce and vote for the bill.

Add your name to demand action here

Right now, many Republican members of the New York legislature are opposing the bill. Some religious institutions are pressuring legislators to reject the bill because it could mean holding them accountable. Religious groups and others are threatening to thwart the re-election of members if they pass the bill.
Clergy for Child Victims is mobilizing faith leaders to sign this petition to the governor letting the governor, state assembly, and state senate know that we stand behind the governor’s support of the bill. On May 9, a group of clergy will make a lobbying trip to Albany to try and get new legislation passed before budget negotiations start.

Sign and share with your colleagues here

As an influential faith leader in New York, I urge you to sign the letter to demonstrate widespread support from multi-religious faith leaders.
Thank you for supporting this crucial effort.
In faith,
Rabbi Ari Hart

The Australian Federal Police – Rabbi Chaim Tsvi Groner

Media Release: Australian Federal Police asked to investigate Yeshivah’s Rabbi Chaim Tsvi Groner over evidence to Royal Commission

Manny Waks
19 April 2017

PictureRabbi Chaim Tsvi Groner

The Australian Federal Police have received a complaint by victims of child sexual abuse at the Yeshivah Centre in East St. Kilda that alleges Rabbi Chaim Tsvi Groner, a Member of the Yeshivah Board, knowingly provided false or misleading evidence to the Royal Commission last month.

Rabbi Groner told the Royal Commission that disgraced Rabbi Zvi Telsner did not ‘still occupy a position of leadership within the Yeshivah Centre’

Rabbi Groner was called to appear before the Royal Commission’s Case Study 53 last month, which followed an investigation into the Chabad run Jewish school by the Royal Commission in early 2015 which heard that Rabbi Zvi Telsner, as Head Rabbi of Yeshivah, had delivered sermons attacking child sexual abuse victims and their families, encouraging other members of the community to ostracise them and discouraging victims from reporting their abuse to the police or media.

Rabbi Telsner, who is the brother in law of Rabbi Groner, supposedly resigned his position as Head Rabbi in September 2015 after another attack on a victim of child sexual abuse and released a statement acknowledging that his ‘conduct towards victims and their families did not demonstrate the values or behavior…necessary of a Rabbi in my position’.

Giving evidence last month, Rabbi Groner told the Royal Commission that presently, ‘the full extent of [Rabbi Telsner’s] involvement in the Yeshivah Centre Melbourne’ is as a ‘congregant’ who ‘gives a few classes in the Synagogue’ and that Rabbi Telsner did not ‘still occupy a position of leadership within the Yeshivah Centre Melbourne’.

According to victims, Rabbi Telsner continues in the position of Head Rabbi despite ‘resignation’

In a complaint made to the Australian Federal Police and the Royal Commission last week, victims of abuse said that Rabbi Telsner remained extensively involved in the Yeshivah Centre Melbourne and continued to occupy its most senior leadership position. 

In particular, Rabbi Telsner:

  • officiates at life cycle events of congregants – for example on 4 April 2017 Rabbi Telsner officiated at a wedding ceremony in which he was introduced by Rabbi Moshe Kahn (Director of Chabad Youth) as the Moreh D’atra (Head Rabbi and most senior halachic decision maker of the Yeshivah Centre);
  • together with Rabbi Groner, is the co-head of the Chabad Kashrut Committee in which they are responsible for determining the kosher status of food eaten by the Yeshivah community;
  • is seated in front of the congregation in the Head Rabbi’s seat during Synagogue services;
  • continues to be paid his regular salary as Head Rabbi;
  • maintains an office within the synagogue building; 
  • delivers sermons from the pulpit during weekly and festival prayer services;
  • is waited on by congregants and prayer leaders before prayers commence as a congregation does for its Head Rabbi.

Victims allege Rabbi Groner knowingly gave false or misleading evidence to the Royal Commission

Victims have asked the Australian Federal Police to investigate whether Rabbi Groner’s evidence breached Section 6H of the Royal Commissions Act 1902 (Cth) which makes it an offence to knowingly provide false or misleading evidence at a hearing before a Royal Commission. The Act provides:

(1)    A person shall not, at a hearing before a Commission, intentionally give evidence that the person knows to be false or misleading with respect to any matter being a matter that is material to the inquiry being made by the Commission
(2)    An offence against subsection (1) is an indictable offence and subject to this section is punishable on conviction by imprisonment for a period not exceeding 5 years or by a fine not exceeding $20,000.

Continuing involvement of Rabbis Telsner and Groner with Yeshivah a source of ongoing trauma for victims

Victims who were sexually abused as children within Yeshivah cite the continuing involvement of Rabbis Telsner and Groner with Yeshivah as a source of ongoing trauma which makes it difficult for them to move on with their lives. They are disappointed that the Jewish community, donors and the Government continue to support and provide funding to Yeshivah despite its failure to hold these individuals to account over their roles in the child sexual abuse scandal.
Rabbi Groner was a Trustee of Yeshivah during the period in which victims were bullied and ostracised for speaking out. He is one of only two members of the old guard who did not resign in the wake of the Royal Commission’s revelations and instead, implemented a new governance structure in which he was given a permanent seat on the Board. Rabbi Groner is the son of the late Rabbi Yitzchok Dovid Groner, the long-time leader of Yeshivah, who was found by the Royal Commission to have ‘failed in his obligation to the students of Yeshivah’ by not acting upon complaints of child sexual abuse.

UPDATE: The AFP has responded – in part it reads:

I would like to advise you that further discussion has occurred between the AFP and the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse (the Royal Commission) regarding your allegations about false evidence provided to the Royal Commission by Rabbi Chaim Tsvi Groner. As a result of these discussions your information has been sent to the relevant area for assessment.
