Reb Sholom Mordechai’s Rubashkin Federal Sentencing Delayed Again


rubashkin2Federal sentencing for Reb Sholom Mordechai ben Rivkah Rubashkin has been delayed again. Reb Sholom Mordechai is currently on trial in Waterloo for misdemeanor state child labor violations. That trial is slated to last the rest of this week and overlaps with the for the federal fraud conviction, which had been scheduled for Thursday.

Today, U.S. District Court Judge Linda Reade entered an order delaying the federal sentencing until June 22. This move required consent by Reb Sholom Mordechai, whose efense team granted Judge Reade permission to postpone the sentencing.  The sentencing will be at 3:30 p.m. at the courthouse in Cedar Rapids. The child labor trial, barring any unforseen circumstances, will be completed by then.

Following the initial sentencing hearing beginning on April 28, Judge Reade didn’t announce the punishment, saying she needed more time to consider the matter. She initailly said Thursday was the date the sentence would be completed. Meanwhile, trial for the state child labor charges started May 11.

  1. Boruch Hashem
    It will be soon completly delayed.
    Just keep davening and Hashem will surely help Solom Mordechai Bem Rivkah
    and all the “sonim” will have a complete Mappallah.

  2. It is known that the date for the Nurenberg trials was delayed numerous times until it fell out on Hoshanah Rabbah. May Hashem transform any evil forces to those of great blessing for Reb Shalom Mordechai and not listen to the modern day Bilaams or any of his ilk.

  3. where oh where is Moshiach?? we keep thinking that this trial is going to end really quick and he will be BeEzrahs Hashem a free man greeting Moshiach HaTzaddik..

  4. Again, if those who are in charge of prosecuting this case insist on digging for and making up reasons to charge this man, the same can be done, I believe, to dig up things in their past and/or present lives. They could be removed from office with great disgrace.

  5. P.S.
    However, there are ways of doing this if one, or a group of people, want to. It would cost money.
    You know about private detectives for instance.

  6. Good. The Aibishter runs the world. He is pulling the strings here. Let them keep pushing it down. But WE HERE HAVE TO REMEMBER TO KEEP THE MOMENTUM UP. KEEP DAVENING.DAVENING. DAVENING. KEEP GOING TO THE ASIFOS. LET’S HAVE MORE ASIFOS. KEEP DONATING.
    Hashem can make a nes keheref ayin. We all know what the nissim can be. Vehamayvin yovin.
