Ex-Principal Yegutkin Convicted Of sexual abuse

 Jewish Week   Emanuael Yegutkin, 33, the former principal of Elite High School in Bensonhurts, was convicted Monday morning of all 75 counts of charges that he sexually molested students at the yeshiva.

 [This account does not seem to be accurate according to NY Daily News 2009 which says his victims were not students at his school]

"This conviction is an example of my office's policy not to tolerate horrendous crimes that target children,"  said Brooklyn District Attorney Charles J. Hynes through a spokesman.

Another spokesman later added on his behalf, "this sexual predator faces the remainder of his life behind bars. This should serve as a clear message that those who would sexually abuse children anywhere in this county will be punished severely.

  1. The penalties imposed by American courts are much too severe. It makes it very questionable if it is acceptable to report them.

    If the penalty for shoplifting in WalMart was they would cut off the shoplifters fingers followed by his hand and feet and they would then tie him to two horses pulling in different directions killing him, would it be appropriate to report a shoplifter to the police or authorities? Most certainly not.

    In these cases too, 25 long years in harsh prison conditions are extremely inappropriate. Yes, they committed a terrible crime. But that does not mean that society can do whatever it pleases with them upon conviction.

    1. You are absolutely correct. A stern look and maybe a potch on the hentele would be far more appropriate. I most definitely agree that locking him away so he will no longer pose a danger to innocent children is way too harsh and all the reason we need not to report heilige yidden to the secular authorities, no matter the offense.

    Yet another Chillul HaShem berabim, this time by someone with nice black yarmulka and beard, who heads a so-called "Jewish school" and should know better.

    The point of all this, is that a critical mass has been reached and the pot is boiling over in society in general in America, Israel and Britain where there are huge frum communities that can NO longer hide below the radar and get away with pleading for special treatment and expect merely a slap on the wrist while predators, perverts and outright gangsters in those frum communities get off scot free.

    Now we can expect to see a lot more frum miscreants who will not be able to hide behind fake Halachic shields and pleas for special treatment merely for being a frum Jew, or even expect their protectors and overlords (read: rebbes, roshei yeshiva, balebatim) come and bale them out, but instead troublemakers need to know that the writing is on the wall, play time is over, the times have changed big time, and they face real jail time with criminals behind bars where they will finally be kept away from harming unsuspecting innocent and weak members of the frum and general community.
