Nechemya Weberman was convicted of 60 counts

Nechemya Weberman, who was an unlicensed chasidic counselor living within the Satmar community of Brooklyn, was convicted of 60 counts relating to sex abuse of a child and endangering the welfare of a child.  He faces 25 years in prison on the top charge and two to seven years on the lesser charges.

The Awareness Center wants to thank the teenage survivor for her courage to come forward and speak the truth and her family for not caving into the political pressures that surrounded this case.  Both the survivor and her family members should be seen as heroes.  When ever they walk into a room everyone should stand up and applaud them for their heroic efforts. Fund also need to be raised to assist the survivor and her family members heal. 

 The Awareness Center also wants to thank the hundreds of people who supported this young brave woman during this important time of her life.

As a people and a nation we also must do what we can to help the family of Nechemya Weberman as they prepare for this family member to go to prison. Please read: "When A Family Member Molests: Reality, Conflict, and The Need For Support"
