I have confirmed that Israel Weingarten is in the Metropolitan Detention Center (MDC), a US government detention facility in Brooklyn classified as an administrative facility. He was probably moved temporarily from Virginia where is he is serving a 30 year sentence for his new sentencing hearing.
In January U.S. Second Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan overturned one of his 5 charges relating to transporting his sixteen year old daughter across international borders to sexually abuse her. The Appeals Court ruled that the enabling legislation only covered travel to or from the US, not travel between two foreign countries. One of the charges for which he was convicted was for travel between Israel and Belgium and thus was excluded.
When he was first sentenced he was given ten years for each of the five charges, but two of those ten year sentences were to be served concurrently with others. The dropped charge was one of those sentences to be served concurrently. Now he goes back for re-sentencing at which point the judge will decide whether to reduce the sentence.
I will inform readers as soon as I know the resentencing date/time, assuming it has not already happened.
One source says she heard that he was in the MDC over Passover.
