RUBASHKIN SENTENCED TO TWENTY SEVEN YEARS(Monday, June 21st, 2010) 11:54AM EST: YWN has learned that the judge has sentenced Sholom Rubashkin to 27 years in jail – Hashem Yirachem!
She will officially read the sentence to the defendant in court tomorrow.
The sentence is greater than the amended recommendation from prosecutors.
SUPPORTERS OF SHOLOM RUBASHKIN OUTRAGED BY EXCESSIVE PRISON SENTENCE
Sentence of 27 Years Inconsistent with Calls from Legal Community for Judge to Avoid Disparity of Justice
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa – Family, friends and supporters of Sholom Rubashkin expressed outrage Monday after the federal court announced a sentence of 27 years in prison for Rubashkin for his bank fraud conviction. The sentence is greater than the amended recommendation from prosecutors, and is inconsistent with calls from throughout the legal community for Rubashkin to be sentenced in a manner similar to other men and women convicted of white-collar crimes.
“The sentence is greater than necessary, indeed, it is greater than what the government asked for,” said Guy Cook, a member of Rubashkin’s legal defense team. “It is unfair and excessive, essentially a life sentence for a 51-year-old man, and is not in the public interest.”
The Hon. Bob Barr announced Monday that Rubashkin will appeal the verdict and the sentence.
“This sentence is inconsistent with the overwhelming view of the legal community, including six former U.S. attorneys general, who have all said a first-time, non-violent offense does not warrant a multi-decade sentence,” Barr said. “The court’s sentence today is even more than prosecutors asked for, which is a very disturbing development.”
Rubashkin’s attorneys had asked the court to impose a sentence no greater than 72 months, noting his positive history and character and his extraordinary family circumstances. They emphasized that Rubashkin’s conduct was not done for personal gain, that he did not intend any loss to the bank, and that a 72-month sentence would allow the Bureau of Prisons to place Rubashkin in a facility with experience in effectively and humanely incarcerating observant Jewish inmates.
Prosecutors, however, recommended 25 years in prison for Rubashkin. The extreme recommendation sparked outrage amongst legal scholars, with more than two dozen former senior Justice Department officials – including six former U.S. attorneys general – criticizing the prosecutors’ recommendation in a letter to Judge Reade. Rubashkin also garnered support from a wide array of political, legal and community leaders, who expressed dismay at the potential for Rubashkin to receive such a harsh sentence.
“It is heartbreaking to see the judge and the prosecution make an example out of Sholom Rubashkin at the expense of his family and his community,” said his wife, Leah. “What has happened today is inconsistent with the idea of equal justice under the law. All we have asked is that he be treated the same as everyone else.”
Rubashkin’s sentence is particularly harsh when compared to others convicted of similar crimes. Mark Turkcan, the president of First Bank Mortgage of St. Louis, who misapplied $35 million in loans, resulting in a loss of approximately $25 million, was recently sentenced by a federal judge in Missouri to one year and one day in prison.
The Rubashkin family and its supporters remain committed to pursuing all avenues towards a fair sentence, including appeal. They continue to call on the Justice Department to investigate the pattern of overzealous prosecution in the Rubashkin case, which included the life sentence recommendation.
“The way this case was handled may go down in history as a permanent stain on American justice,” said Nathan Lewin, an attorney overseeing Rubashkin’s appeal. “Sholom Rubashkin has been targeted by prosecutors in Iowa from the very beginning, and has been treated unlike other similar defendants. We have asked, and continue to ask, the Justice Department to review the numerous instances of prosecutors stepping outside the bounds of standard and decent conduct in this case.”
In addition to the uncharacteristically severe sentence recommendation, Rubashkin has been subjected to numerous instances of harsh or disparate treatment by prosecutors and the government. The Agriprocessors meatpacking plant he oversaw was subjected to a military style raid in May 2008, which had disastrous effects on the Postville community and could have been avoided if Immigrations and Customs Enforcement had agreed to the plant’s offer to cooperate.
After the raid, Rubashkin was subjected to seven superseding indictments and denied bail before trial because of claims by prosecutors that he could flee to Israel because he is Jewish. While Rubashkin was eventually released on bail after no sufficient evidence was found that he was a flight risk, Rubashkin was again denied bail before sentencing and deemed a “flight risk.”
And before trial, the District Judge severed the trial of the 72 immigration violations in the Seventh Superseding Indictment from the 91 bank-fraud charges. Nonetheless, contending that he committed bank fraud when he represented to the bank that Agri was complying with the law, the Iowa prosecutors presented more than two days of highly inflammatory testimony regarding the immigration allegations during the bank-fraud trial. The District Judge denied repeated defense requests for a mistrial.
Rubashkin was cleared by a jury last month of having personal knowledge of, and criminal liability for, the employment of minors at Agriprocessors. That was the only case brought to trial on Rubashkin’s involvement in the hiring practices of Agriprocessors. The federal charges that he was involved in hiring illegal immigrants have been dismissed.

MORE SOURCES AND INFORMATION ON THE CASE:
- First of all, a general explanation of the fallacies and deliberate miscarriage of justice in this case. Make sure to open the link provided by Anonymous in Comments:
This is information that has to be made public, and that should be used to fight this unjust verdict.
Unfortunately, I am not too hopeful, Amerika these days is not what it used to be, the government is very antisemitic, there is intent to hurt good Jews.
May Hashem help that poor man.
- ANOTHER RENDITION, WITH MORE NAMES AND DETAILS , MENTIONING IN PARTICULAR THE JEWISH PLAYERS IN THE STORY.
About a month after the May 2008 Agriprocessors raid, a Houston rag exporter called Action Rags USA was raided, resulting in the arrest of 150 immigrants. Owner Mubarik Kahlon was sentenced to two years' probation and a $6,000 fine. The list of comparably light sentence cases goes on virtually without variation.
- And here, some details about the relationship between Scott-Schmaryah Rosenberg and the Rubashkin family. What a sorry, sad thing. However, according to information I just received today, June 27, this story might not be accurate. It is questionable whether Shmaryah actually slept at the Rubashkins. A third party familiar with him informed me that he himself stated he never slept there. So , who is telling the truth... I don't know.
- And here, as I was expecting, THE DIRTY FINGERS OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH, IN PARTICULAR OF THE JESUITS, ALL OVER THIS ONE:
In 1987 Aaron Rubashkin opens Agriprocessor in Postville, Iowa:
"In the 1980s Aaron Rubashkin, a Lubavitcher Hasidic butcher from Brooklyn, decided to take advantage of economic structural changes to bring mass-production to the kosher meat production business. In 1987 he bought an abandoned slaughterhouse outside Postville, a town undergoing a major employment crisis in northeastern Iowa and opened a processing plant creating some 350 jobs....
Agriprocessors has had a major impact on the town of Postville, creating new jobs, and bringing an influx of ultra religious Jews to a part of the United States, where Jews where practically unknown."
The same year Agriprocessor opened its doors, Oudekirk received specialized training at the Catholic Jesuit Diocese in Dallas, where he learned how to work with Hispanics employed in meat-packing plants, with other words, on how to create trouble for Rubashkin, who was employing Hispanic workers at Agriprocessors.
"Before the raid, Ouderkirk was practically the only local voice to speak out about indignities endured by Agriprocessors workers..."
This reminds me so much of the recent situation in Israel with the Haredim, where we see the New Israel Fund, i.e. Christian Aid, the Ford Foundation, etc., interfering and causing agitation where there was none. A discriminated upon, but not particularly unhappy, group is manipulated by an antisemitic interloper to go to the authorities, start legal proceedings, all this with the purpose of destroying the Jews. Same thing here, with similar results. This situation reeks of virulent Catholic Church antisemitism. And unfortunately in the United States the Catholic Church rules via the Jesuits; this is one more proof of that known fact.
What we don't know is the exact connection between the plaintiffs, the prosecutor, the verdict, the judge, and the Jesuits. But rest assured that the Jesuits' dirty hands are all over this one.
And as usual, the leftist Jews played right along, between a disgruntled Chabadnik- Schmaryah Rosenberg -, The Forward, and all those bleeding heart Jewish liberals who hate Judaism as much as the Jesuits..... as always, perfect partners.... but while the Jews are at the forefront of the battle, the Jesuits are never seen..... UNTIL WE UNMASK THEM.
The May immigration raid that hit Agriprocessors, the nation's largest kosher slaughterhouse, was an unusual Jewish story: The people arrested in the raid had worked in the Postville, Iowa, plant so that Jewish consumers could have affordable kosher meat. Yet the job of cleaning up the humanitarian mess that followed that raid was taken up not by the local Jewish community but by Postville's Catholic church and its leader, Father Paul Ouderkirk. Ouderkirk, who has spent most of his life running Hispanic ministries at Midwestern churches, is part of a long Catholic tradition of ministering to the underprivileged of Latin America, no matter where they live. Before the raid, Ouderkirk was practically the only local voice to speak out about indignities endured by Agriprocessors workers. Now 75, he acted despite having retired from St. Bridget's Catholic Church. After the raid, Ouderkirk gave up what leisure time he had to take on the full-time job of helping the hundreds of immigrants affected. He led the church's efforts to raise money for the workers, soldiering alongside Paul Real, the church's lay pastor, and Violeta Iseman, an Agriprocessors employee turned social worker. The church has been the only source of food and shelter for dozens of workers who were arrested and released. Ouderkirk and his team showed that in the face of disaster, religion can provide the surest relief..
he was assigned to the diocesan parish of San Rafael, in Bolivia, in 1985. When that parish was turned over to the local bishop, he served two years with Glenmary Missioners in Mt. Pleasant, and Pittsburg, Texas. There he helped establish three parishes and started an extensive Hispanic ministry program in each of them, he also took training through the Archdiocese of Dallas to work with helping legalize the status of immigrant farm workers and those working in meat processing.
THIS STORY HAS TO BE TOLD AND SPREAD FAR AND WIDE. PEOPLE HAVE TO KNOW WHO IS BEHIND THIS OUTRAGEOUS VERDICT.
MAYBE ONCE THEY ARE EXPOSED THEY WILL LOSE THEIR ABILITY TO CAUSE AS MUCH HARM.
