This is far from being an acquittal of the immigration charges. The charges were dismissed without prejudice. This means that the government can decide to bring the charges once again, if and when they please. This is a tactic by the prosecutors to spend as little as possible on prosecution and get the maximum time in jail. If Sholom Rubashkin does not get at least a lifetime sentence or gets exonerated on appeal, it is possible and maybe even likely, that the government will refile the charges. As far as I can tell, they’re not interested in putting more money… Read more »

I read on CBS news that the charges WERE dismissed
and not just that it states
“During the financial fraud trial, Rubashkin’s defense attorneys protested the government’s introduction of testimony involving alleged immigration violations. In the motion, prosecutors acknowledge that several of the charges in the financial trial were based on the assumption that Rubashkin harbored illegal immigrants.”
even whithout an appeal wont the case have to be taken back to court cause of this?
waiting to hear the rest of the good news!

still saying tehillim!

Unfortunately this doesnt affect much

The government basically says sentencing guidelines make the fraud charges so severe that they eclipse the penalties for the immigration charges. So the government has asked the judge to dismiss the immigration charges against Rubashkin and Agriprocessors without prejudice. This means that, if circumstances change, the government can bring the immigration charges again.
He is still facing 1200 + years for the conviction in the fraud case last week. He still remains in jail.

They are trying for a stiff sentence for the fraud trial
November 19, 2009 6:36 am

They dropped the immigration trial because they believe that Rubashkin will, chas v’shalom, get a very stiff sentence for the fraud trial. They probably never intended a trial for the immigration charges in the first place since they brought it up anyway in the first trial. that way they avoided charges of the judge’s unimpartiality.

they're trying to save money
November 19, 2009 6:33 am

“In court papers filed Thursday, the attorney’s office said some of the convictions were premised on Rubashkin knowingly making false statements to the banks about harboring undocumented immigrants at Agriprocessors. Jurors found Rubashkin guilty of making false statements to the bank that he as unaware that immigrant workers at the plant were undocumented prior to a May 12, 2008 immigration raid at the plant, the motion said. Any convictions on the 72 immigration charges would be “entirely eclipsed” by the recommended sentencing guidelines for the fraud convictions, the attorney’s office said. “However, any evidence of immigration violations would be relevant… Read more »

Slow down
November 19, 2009 6:14 am

The charges were NOT dismissed. The prosecution agreed to postpone the State trial on the immigration charges till the appeals process on SMR federal conviction is completed, which could take a few years. at that point they will have the option to go to trial. this is still good news And kiven shenidche nidche NOW

not a ness
November 19, 2009 6:04 am

what ness? this shows they didn’t have a good case against him and that is why they tried him for the bank fraud first. exactly like nat lewin said!

Will thi really make a difference??
November 19, 2009 5:59 am

Unfortunately the main reason the Gov’t dropped the charges is that Sholom, being found guilty of the immigration charges, would not lengthen his sentence due to the sentencing guidelines in his conviction in the fraud case last week. The Gov’t is doing this basically to save time and money. Any conviction of immigration charges would simply run concurrent with the fraud sentencing. I really feel for Sholom, he is a good man.

WOW!! Boruch HAshem!!!!!!
