http://www.thejewishweek.com/news/newscontent.php3?artid=1056602/23/2005 Lanner Back In Prison - Staff ReportRabbi Baruch Lanner, the former youth leader and yeshiva high school principal convicted of sexual abuse in 2002, was taken into custody and returned to state prison Wednesday to resume serving a seven-year sentence, according to Peter Boser, a Monmouth County, N.J., prosecutor. Rabbi Lanner, 55, served less than a week of that sentence before being freed in October 2002 pending the ruling on his appeal. In a 3-0 decision earlier this month, a New Jersey appeals court upheld one charge of criminal sexual contact with a young woman, then a teenage student at Hillel, the Ocean Township high school where Rabbi Lanner was principal from 1982 to 1997. The judges dismissed another charge of child endangerment involving a second female student at the school. Lawyers for Rabbi Lanner had sought a delay and continuation of bail pending a further appeal of the conviction, but Judge Paul Chaiet ordered Rabbi Lanner back to jail. An appeal to the New Jersey Supreme Court is pending. Sources say the rabbi could be eligible for parole in about two years for good behavior. He is registered as a sex offender under Megan’s Law. The case was prompted by a series of investigative reports by The Jewish Week that began in June 2000.
Don't worry about Lanner. I bet you his hotshot lawyers, one of whom is Alan Dershowitz, will have Lanner out of jail in time for this Shabbos' candle lighting. And in time for him to fondle his new daughter-in-law, who happens to be the daughter of the Principal of the Bruriah School for girls in Elizabeth, new jersey
>bet you his hotshot lawyers,>one of whom is Alan Dershowitz, Nathan Dershowitz (Alan's younger brother) is his lawyer. I believe Alan is a mere "consultant".>will have Lanner out of jail in >time for this Shabbos' candle >lighting. Post it after Shabbos if it happens. I doubt it. He's likely got 2 years in jail ahead of him. Getting the Supreme Court to hear his appeal is unlikely, but possible.Please leave Lanner's family out of future comments.>Bruriah SchoolBy the way 2 points, for anyone who realizes why naming a school after Bruriah (the only woman quoted in the Talmud) is a little strange (hint: given how she met her end).
