A juror in the Weberman case makes something clear

The New York Daily News quotes a juror in the case of child molestor Nechemya Weberman of the Satmar community making something clear to those pulling out anti-semitism cards on his conviction:
They convicted him because of the facts, not because of his religion.

A juror in the sexual abuse case pitting a teen accuser against Hasidic leader Nechemya Weberman said he broke the panel’s silence to refute the notion the jury returned a guity verdict out of anti-Semitic bias.

"It wasn't religion, it wasn't their background, it wasn't revenge," said the 42-year-old man, who asked not to be identified. "It was a young girl and an old man alone in a room."
There's just one minor flaw: the juror should also say it's not because of his race either. That could also come in helpful.

This was brought up because:
Weberman’s lawyer George Farkas had claimed after the conviction that Hasidic Jews do not have “the same shot with a jury as anyone else."
Oh, please. Let's also remember that Weberman's victim is as Jewish as he, which makes this a case of a Jew assaulting another Jew, thinking he can get away with it simply because he lives in an insular society and wasn't attacking an outsider. Which is offensive, and unfortunately, it's also a problem much more with Muslim communities.

Weberman awaits sentencing tomorrow, and I hope he gets sent to the slammer for a century, as the papers note is possible.
