Witness Intimidation by La Kosher Nostra–Photos of Accuser on Stand Disrupt Sexual Abuse Trial

The trial of an ultra-Orthodox Jewish counselor accused of repeatedly molesting a girl was disrupted on Thursday afternoon when four spectators in a Brooklyn courtroom were accused of taking pictures with their cellphones of the accuser on the witness stand.

The four men, identified by prosecutors as Joseph Fried, Yona Weisman, Abraham Zupnick and Lemon Juice, were arrested and charged with criminal contempt in the second degree, a misdemeanor that carries a sentence of up to one year in jail.

The accuser, who is now 17, has testified that she and her family had faced a pattern of intimidation from the Satmar Hasidic community in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, since she alleged last year that Nechemya Weberman, the unlicensed therapist her parents had sent her to for counseling, repeatedly forced her to have oral sex during their sessions together from the time she was 12 until she turned 15.

In June, prosecutors charged four Williamsburg men with attempting to silence her by offering her a $500,000 bribe through her boyfriend to drop her participation in the case. Intimidation of sexual abuse victims in the ultra-Orthodox community is common, prosecutors say, because going to secular authorities with charges against another Jew is considered treasonous. But arrests for intimidation are rare.

Mr. Weberman’s accuser had already been provided with increased security after onlookers said they spotted Mr. Weberman staring at her threateningly through the window of a conference room as she rested during a break in the court session on Wednesday, said Jerry Schmetterer, a spokesman for the district attorney’s office. The defense denies that Mr. Weberman did this.

Then at about 2 p.m. Thursday, court officers spotted a man taking a picture of the teenager as she testified, Mr. Schmetterer said. The judge, Justice John G. Ingram, ordered the jury cleared from the 20th-floor courtroom in State Supreme Court, and the cellphones of all onlookers in the courtroom were confiscated.

The phones of the four men arrested had photos of the teenager that had been taken in the courtroom, and one photo appeared to have already been posted to Twitter, Mr. Schmetterer said. David Bookstaver, a spokesman for the court, said that Judge Ingram also admonished the men before allowing the trial to continue.

While the district attorney’s office did not comment on motive, Rabbi Nuchem Rosenberg, an advocate for abuse victims who was in the courtroom, said that the men arrested were Satmar Hasidim, some of whom supported Mr. Weberman. “This is intimidation,” he said. “The government should not let this slide away, because this is not an accident. It is done deliberately in an effort to keep the law system from functioning.”

    Ugh.
    Why are they always fat and ugly?
    Why do they believe they can get away with this? Is it because they have, many times, in the past?

    As far as the name is concerned; why do Americans, in particular, never associate Mafia with Jews? Have the Stern-Gang and Crime Inc., been that well-hidden, or what? Would it be that they were sent to Palestine to murder and destroy and steal homes, back in their era(s) that causes most Americans to believe it’s only Italians (and some Irish) who are part of the, “evil mafia”?

    In Austin, the elections-board and certain other elected county-offices are together known as, “Bipartisan Mafia”. I prefer to call them, “Bipartisan-Crime Inc”, because their money goes to and comes from there, and not the Italians.

    It seems to me the most despicable criminals are those with no conscience, and it’s the Zionist-gang that perpetrates the most horrendous crimes against humanity, at every level.

    Mafia is their clever way of diverting onto ITALIANS their own evils (like “Russian” mafia) Do you think a movie like The Godfather would ever have been made in Hollywood if the subject was Meyer Lansky? How many books or films identify the Bolsheviks as jewish.? Just generic Russians who slaughtered their own Czar and elite

    Is there no end to these criminal cockroaches ??

    The real Mafia. Make no mistake about it. As Frank points out, is Jewish through & through. Another notable name of the past Sydney Korschack. Chigcago based during the Prohibition Era. Pimp, Drugs and Alcohol smuggler, commissioned murders of rivals, you name it. IN Las Vegas there was not only Ben ‘Bugsy’ Siegal but Moe Dalitz. They have been around all of this time hiding behind the Italians. Somehow this smarmy bunch of thugs seems to think theycan still get away with murder, molesting minors, Ecstasy and Meth rackets, Black Market Body Organ Trade, Snuff Films ad nausem, with reckless impunity. In this day and age with instant messaging and 24/7 internet connections they can no longer hide in the shadows. This fat ugly old creature needs full prosecution for violating that girl. I wonder how many more victims he has, who have been intimidated by his thuggish cohorts? I’d bet fifty bucks there are many more. Here’s hoping they surface and bury him in prison. Luckily he won’t be allowed to get out and continue his abuses, despite the lemmings who throw money at the Courts and their victims with bribes and coercion. May they all meet ‘Big Leroy’ in slammer and learn what it’s like to be on the receiving end for a change!

    # 3 LOL!
    i wonder if these Satmar Hasidic are the same that are forbidden to see or touch a female, so during intercourse they place a sheet between them???
    l think that their ‘religion’ is predictably, mentally and physically unhealthy and the ubiquteous “Gawd told me to do it” excuse/card is clear evidence of the later.
    Genetically this empty shell of a Fanatic and all Nacissistic Authoritarians know themselves to be above the law, no sense of remorse, selfish in everyway. Not a Empathy neuron to be found in any of them. Our expectations of these monsters is to high.
    Hopefully another victim will come forward and support this heroine. As much as we wish there was only one. These are serial perpetrators of crimes against children ~ his going to prison should help knock out this virulent bunch of fanatics too.

    That “brave” “woman” is an unmitigated low life piece of garbage. One of the biggest whores for the side of evil (read israel).

    One of the commenters from your link actually had it right… all this publicity is actually giving more support to pamela geller’s posters, not less.

    She definitely did a fabulous job of making everybody aware of the “hate” campaign, and for that, I’m sure Pamela Geller is very thankful.

    Those vermin, so called former Muslims… traitorous vipers in human clothing.
