In all fairness.....

Lets recall that Mr Rubashkin was offered a very generous plea deal of 12 years, and he refused it. I am a lawyer and I agree that on its face the sentence seems overly harsh, given the crimes Mr. Rabashkin was convicted of, and Mr. Rubashkin’s non-existent prior criminal history. However, I don’t see the sentence handed down as the fruit of discrimination or antisemitism, rather I see the sentencing guidelines as the culprit. The sentencing guidelines were overly harsh BEFORE Mr. Rubashkin committed his crimes, and they are that way as the result of strong lobbying by financial institutions.… Read more »

Thank Mr. Sherman and Mr. McMahon!

We should vote for these kind of legislators! True ambassadors of justice, sticking up for the truth. They are both great letters. I like how Mr. McMahon denounces the judge’s actions. I also really like how Congressman Sherman stresses the amazing letter from the 6 Attorneys General.

More letters needed

More letters needed

If more politicians would express that this is their wish – maybe the request would have more clout. Urge your local politicians to write similar letters to the AG.

You may be a lawyer but I wonder if you are a criminal trial lawyer ( as I have been ). The anti Semitism and descrinination was not the guidelines but in the conduct of the trial which did not allow the introduction of certain evidence,lies by prosecuction witnesses, misconduct by the ” Judge “and prosecutors etc.etc. etc.

so – it seems if you were in SMR’s position you would go for a plea bargain in a case that was trumped up against you – say u were guilty when your biggest crime being knocked on you was CAUSED BY THE GOV – because they refused to allow any serious buyers….. so now he owes $ to bank….. is he really guilty or is the gov looking for a way to come out clean?!?!?! you would take 12 yrs to help clean their dirty work when u shouldn’t be serving even ONE DAY????? Hmmmm I wonder what u… Read more »

The point is, this travesty has been going on for such a long time. with all the letters, petitions, etc etc has there been any positive results in favour of SMR? Is Reade ignoring these letter? Has there been any reponse from her that is available for all of us to see her mode of thinking? #1 maybe correct in his comments, but ultimately it is upto the judge to pass sentence, and it is the judge who can or cannot justify the sentence. She cannot argue that her hands were tied when she has added on to the recommended… Read more »

Thank you Rabbi Einbinder

We should take note from him. Those who can should approach their Congressmen and Senators and ask them to speak up about this grave injustice.

He will be freed.

My children and I were just discussing the other day where his thanksgiving feast would most probably take place(we decided on CH) and if they could stay up to join(absolutely)! I know Hashem will deliver us imminently from this ludicrous tragedy, thank you Rabbi Einbeinder for doing the right thing-I hope all shluchim and all those with connections-use them…..for if not now when?
With the upcoming Shluchim convention in sight, maybe this can be part of the program?

The point everyone is raising is not that the guidelines are to harsh, but that that the application of those sentencing guidelines is not equal from one white collar criminal to another. Since you’re a big lawyer here is some lawyer homework: find me ONE criminal in Iowa (or nearby states) who committed similar crimes (apples to apples) who received a sentence equal to HALF of 27 years…just HALF

I promise you no. 1 is either not an attorney or haven’t read the papers here. All this US attorneys also know about the sentencing guidelines. It’s about how you apply that. you got it ?
