|Emanuel Yegutkin studying talmud in court|
Mark Appel, Voice of Justice is reporting from court that the case of Emanuel Yegutkin, former Bensonhurst school principal, accused of molesting 2 boys, started yesterday after being dragged for four years and a jury is being selected. He showed up carrying a big size gemara (talmud) [Weberman.will bring a ZOHAR]
Yegutkin is charged with as many as 3 B felonies and 210 D felonies plus as much misdemeanors as the sand on the beach. What I can’t understand is, since he does not belong to Satmar and he is not from Maramorosh, why is there not a crowd at court claiming his guilt.
I hope to be ther tomorrow morning, and G-D willing I will report to you. Please come on come all to court at 320 Jay Street, Brooklyn, part 20, 17th fl.

Principal Emanuel Yegutkin Now On Trial Almost 4 Years After Arrest For Sexually Abusing Two Teens
Emanuel Yegutkin is now in the second day of his trial before Judge D. Riviezzo, in Kings County Supreme Court, Part 14 (case # 00902-2009).
According to the Daily News, of January 26, 2009, “Two teenage boys told cops they endured years of sexual abuse at the hands of a Brooklyn high school principal, … Emanuel Yegutkin, 30, [who] was suspended … from Elite High School, a private Jewish school in Bensonhurst with mainly Russian-American students. Yegutkin forced a 17-year-old into lewd sex acts from the age of 7 to 14, cops said. He subjected a 19-year-old to five years of fondling, beginning when the teen was 12, police said.
According to Hella Winston of the Jewish Week, “According to several sources close to Ohel, Yegutkin — who also worked as a camp counselor and volunteer Hatzolah medic — had been seen at Ohel for this issue prior to his arrest, apparently referred there by a rabbi in the community.
Yegutkin’s trial started yesterday, October 15. I am awaiting reports from those attending the trial.
It is scandalous that a man like this is out on bail for almost 4 years awaiting trial. I shudder to think of the needless pain to his victims who are waiting for justice. These long windows aren’t just painful to victims; they create additional opportunities for those who would intimidate witnesses.
