Did Kohn Plea Bargain for 8 Years to Avoid a 103 Years

David Kohn pleaded guilty to having oral sex with a young girl over a three-year period beginning when she was 12-years-old in return for an eight year sentence. I wonder if he was influenced by the 103 year sentence given to Nechemya Weberman for similar crimes. He may have decided eight years in jail was not such a bad deal. At least there would be life after jail.

  1. Lema’an yishmeu veyirau did make it’s imprint after all. Let’s hope it will reverberate even before the facts.

  2. One worries about the enourmous power to the prosecution that will eventually force innocent defendants to plead guilty for fear of obscene sentences .

  3. Just illustrating what kind of double edged sword this is. It may be useful in catching the bad guy now, but it may come back to bite us in the asphalt another day.

    One can be worried about two thing at the same time no? (isnt it supposed to be a jewish thing to worry?)
