Yaakov Litzman jailed for 8 months over his offenses

The former health minister from the Haredi-led UTJ party has been given a prison sentence of 8 months for serious crimes he committed:
Former lawmaker Yaakov Litzman of the ultra-Orthodox United Torah Judaism party was convicted Monday of breach of public trust and sentenced to eight months in jail as well as a fine of roughly $900.

[...] Litzman was suspected of using his position to influence the examination of Leifer's fitness to stand trial or be extradited on mental grounds. Leifer – a former ultra-Orthodox headmistress – faced 74 separate charges of child sexual abuse, and was eventually deported to Australia in January 2021, following a 13-year-long legal battle.

Litzman also reportedly attempted to prevent the closure of a food establishment that he frequently visited during his time as health minister. As part of the plea deal, the deli case was closed.
It's not enough of a sentence he got, and shameful a plea deal had to be made at all. Yet not all that surprising when you consider the times corrupt Haredi officials, along with other left-wing protected classes, get off easy. He reportedly won't be returning to politics. Let's hope not. What he did was offensive and sickening, did a terrible disservice to the overall reputation of Haredis, and he never deserved to be in politics to begin with.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
