Leah Rubashkin Testifies at Sentencing Hearing


rubashkinThe wife of Reb Sholom Mordechai Rubashkin testified this morning about “the giant of a man,” her husband. Leah Rubashkin was testifying in the three day sentencing hearing that will determine how long he will┬áspend in federal prison.

Leah Rubashkin described her husband’s endless obligation and devotion to Agriprocessors. She spoke of sleepless nights and frustration during some periods of time.

Sholom Mordechai wiped tears from his eyes and she spoke of the regression they’ve seen in their autistic son since his incarceration. By all accounts, Sholom Mordechai and his autistic son, Moshe, 16, have a special, close bond. Before Leah Rubashkin took the stand, Abe Roth, a CPA and family friend from New York, who said the failure of the banks to use due diligence in examining the Agriprocssor’s records led to the bank’s losses.

Court will resume in the afternoon with Leah Rubashkin still on the stand.
