    Only a miracle

    Sadly, there is a one year limit on motion 2255, and a year has long passed. Also the other rules applicable to motion 2255 aren’t relevant here. SMR is a victim of ill advice and inadequate representation, which continues to this day, and at this juncture only a presidential pardon will release him from jail. I am.sure that many Jews have learned some hard lessons because of his case, first and foremost the importance of taking a plea deal.when offered, showing remorse even when innocent, and following the conditions of release to the T. May God have mercy on him… Read more »

    Say tihilim everyday for Shalom!
    We will hear good news soon!
    Is there anything we can do, for example an address where we can all send letters to, and ask for Justice!

    Rumor has it that Donald J Trump claims that if elected he will immediately pardon Sholom Mordechai.

    The above article states that the status of the legal case
    depends on the outcome of a powerful motion presently
    before the court. May Hashem grant us all Bsuros Toivois.

    They probably took it off the record to avoid lawsuits over the case.

    The "expungement" means NOTHING

    The "expungement" means NOTHING

    There IS no “story behind the expungement of the state case”. He was acquitted, so the records of the case have been sealed. That is ALL. It doesn’t mean the state admits he’s innocent. The prosecutors will still tell you that they believe he’s guilty, they just couldn’t prove it beyond reasonable doubt. It doesn’t even mean the records are actually destroyed. They still exist, they’re just sealed. Under the new Iowa law ANYONE who is acquitted, or against whom all charges are dropped, is entitled to this as soon as six months have passed, so long as the reason… Read more »

    Trump? Really?

    Trump? Really?

    Number 5, Can you PLEASE give us the source for your comment that Trump would pardon him? He may win after all.
    Our sitting president will surely not pardon him and I understand that when he was just a candidate, he already told the Iowa senator that “we will make sure to investigate”

    Hashem Yerachem on this inspiring man and his wonderful family. Amen

    The problem with the motion is, that its due to be heard by the same nasty vindictive judge reade who presided over his trial, and threw the book on him. Lets pray that she has the same change of heart, that paroh had in mitzrayim when he told the jews to leave. In the month of adar we shall merit miraclesl, and SMR, should be united with his family immediately.

    As far as we are concerned, it is incumbent upon us to do what the holy Torah directs us to do. We must never despair, even under the most awesome conditions. As the Rebbe taught us, “Tracht Gut Vet Zein Gut”.

    Our response must be to tirelessly continue to pound on the gates of heaven and beseech the Al-Mighty’s mercy. For whatever the Al-Mighty wills, it is so. We have only to plead for mercy. May it be the will of the Al-Mighty that he redeem his children from bondage speedily.

    He made a mistake. Ok. 27 years????!! He belongs home with his family. The punishment fit the crime of homicide. This should have been a civil matter or MINOR criminal matter at worst.

    #11 there was no possibility of lawsuits

    #11 there was no possibility of lawsuits

    The record was sealed for only one reason: because the law says anybody who is acquitted is entitled to this. The judge had no discretion.

    Teach ‘The 7 Noahide Laws’ and save America from its barbaric ways! America is on the downfall, according to ‘The Economist’ America, back in the 80s was the best place in the world to live, now it’s #16 in least desirable places. I’ve told one Rubashkin to interest his family in making a simple, documentary video and distribute millions around America. One lawyer, in one of Debbie Maimon’s great articles which were on the Internet a lot, said that if Americans knew what the government did to S.M. Rubashkin “they’d be rioting in the streets.” The Rubashkin believes Americans are… Read more »
