This bum stood in court and pled guilty to endangering the emotional, and physical welfare of a young child. He agreed to *”SEX OFFENDER PROBATION” for three years and is unable to enter his own sub standard school as well as any other school.
Granted the plea doesn’t include jail time, but to have a once respected Rabbi in the community stand in a court room and admit that he willfully hurt a child that resulted in sex offender probation says it all .What kind of a person does that: a predator, a pervert, and a person with no moral compass. I am afraid that this low life has a spinning top rather than a moral compass.
Any parent who has willingly sent their child to his school after he was indicted by a grand jury on the original charges is guilty of endangering their own children. I would have loved to see the bum go to jail. I support the death penalty for the likes of this predator. But I am more than pleased that the ordeal for the child and the family is over.
Kudos to the victim and his family for bringing the issue to the police, for following through, for the strength of the child to testify before a grand jury with compelling and believable testimony.
Mr. Bodenheimer’s sex offender probation is far more restrictive than regular probation and carries with it the shame of being a pervert and predator.
When Mr. Bodenheimer left jail after his arrest he wore a paper bag over his head to hide his shame. I think he should get a large supply of paper bags to wear over his head permanently.
While his probation will last only three years, his shame and the shame he has brought on his community and family will last a lifetime. In the meantime, the young man whose childhood innocence he stole can get on with his life outside of this disgusting community and develop into the outstanding, brave, and courageous young man he has already shown he is.
*Mr. Wiesenthal is right. Another person who was present in the courtroom informed me that Bodenheimer explicitly agreed to probation whose terms defined him as a sex offender.
Contrary to some rumors, Bodenheimer’s conviction for child endangerment was not based on physical abuse though he was also widely known for viciously beating students in Bais Mikroh, the school of which he was principal.
Many in the community insist that Bodenheimer’s openness as a physical sadist precludes his being a sex offender as if the two are mutually exclusive, or as if he would openly sodomize children just because he openly beat them. I mocked this attitude in a satirical post, Monsey Rabbis Declare: Bodenheimer Is Not Zimri.
His physical sadism probably helped him conceal his sexual sadism. Kids in his school were terrified of him. Any child he might have sodomized would have to be thinking “Rabbi Bodenheimer will beat me viciously if I complain about him.”
Some people are now claiming that his guilty plea to child endangerment was based on physical abuse. But the facts are otherwise. He pled guilty to sex offenses and that is reflected in his probation agreement.
Bodenheimer is scheduled to be sentenced on Tuesday, October 27th in the courtroom of Judge Rolf M. Thorsen in the Rockland County Courthouse (1 South Main Street (4th floor), New City, NY 10956). At that time we will see pre-sentencing reports and probation terms which will further confirm his guilt as a sodamizer.
While he pled guilty to child endangerment, the terms of his plea involved conceding his guilt to other charges which were then covered by his plea to a lesser charge.
