The blog CALA NY had a nice posting on what happened during today’s Kings County Supreme Court hearings of alleged sex abusers Nechemya Weberman and Emanuel Yegutkin. In short, Weberman was able to delay some more by claiming that he was not given all available evidence some of which is in the hands of the police. CALA NY suggests that the cops are helping the process drag out by being slow in delivering the evidence. His case was adjourned to Tuesday, June 28, 2011.
Yegutkin, the principal of the Elite High School, a yeshiva for Russian students in Besonhurst, was arrested in January 2009 and charged with was charged with endangering the welfare of a child and sexually abusing children for more than a four-month period.
Incredibly, it is now over two years since he was arrested and yet he has not been sent to trial! By the time he next appears in court on July 11 it will be almost two and a half years since he was arrested. During that time he has been out on $50,000 bail, and has appeared twenty-five times before eight different judges since his arraignment.
