Weberman sentence was cut down to 43 years

Not very pleasing to read that sex offender Nechemya Weberman's prison sentence was reduced by more than half:
The prison sentence of convicted child molester Nechemya Weberman was slashed by more than half when he was shipped upstate last week, records show.

While a Brooklyn judge gave the unlicensed Hasidic counselor 103 years in prison for sexually abusing a girl for three years, the Corrections Department applied a 50-year limit the law has set for the felony he was convicted of.

Unless he commits major offenses behind bars, Weberman, 54, will have seven years cut from his term and be released in 2055 when he’s 97, records show.

Court insiders said that sentencing adjustments like the one in this case are not uncommon. Judges sometimes go over the statutory ceiling to make a statement or to limit reductions by the appellate court.
Part of the reason Weberman got that severe a sentence in the first place was because he wouldn't take a plea bargain. The other is because he deserved it. While it's good to know he'll still be in the clink for a long time, it's a shame this was done, because he was asking for what he got after he violated the poor girl. I think the NY state assembly needs to take steps to modify the law so that scum like him will get the really long sentences they deserve.

Update: on the upside, Naomi Ragen interviewed both the girl and a brother of hers who lives in Israel, and learned more important details.
