A Brooklyn jury found Nechemya Weberman, a prominent figure in the Satmar Hasidic community, guilty on 59 counts after a girl he was paid to counsel revealed the shocking sexual abuse she endured for years, starting when she was just 12.

After an intense two-week trial, Nechemya Weberman, 54, was found guilty on 59 counts of sexual abuse of a rebellious teen girl he counseled. Nechemya was a prominent figure in the Satmar Hasidic community in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

The maximum jail sentence for the top charge alone could land Nechemya in jail for 25 years.

The girl, who turned 18 during the trial, revealed the abuse started in 2007 when she was just 12 years old, and continued for years. She was forced to see Nechemya for counseling after she broke many of the strict Jewish sect’s rules, including questioning god and not obeying the strict modesty rules.

During a pressing four-day cross-examination, she recounted how she was forced to perform oral sex on the man, and reenact pornographic scenes. The abuse occurred during the closed-door counseling sessions in his home office.

“I wanted to die,” she said during her testimony.

Even though the prosecutors didn’t offer any physical evidence of the abuse, they revealed that his house had been a flop house for other rebellious teenage girls.

However, Nechemya denied all of the allegations, and said on the stand that he “never ever” inappropriately touched the teenage girl.

Such a tragic situation. We hope justice is served, and the young woman can now find peace.
