Police want victims molested by Turner to come forward



Anyone with Information about this molester is asked to call Ramapo Police
I wonder how many Rabbonim in Monsey knew about this monster and kept it quiet. Why are they obsessed with Tznius issues of women, but will protect a man that sexually abuses hundreds of victims. How many innocent children have to die before the Rabbonim start condemning these gangsters?
Read the following and weep!

A 58-year-old Monsey man has been charged with sexually molesting a 14-year-old boy.
Ramapo police accused Moishe Turner of 5 Dana Road of having anal and oral sex on seven occasions throughout Ramapo and Spring Valley.
The police investigation led to Turner's arrest last week on seven felony counts of second-degree criminal sex act and one misdemeanor count of endangering the welfare of a child.
Ramapo Police Detective Sgt. Brian Corbett said Monday that the investigation found the sexual activities occurred across Ramapo and in Spring Valley.
He said Ramapo detectives kept the case because the alleged crimes started in the town's jurisdiction.
"At this point in our investigation, we think there may have been more victims," Corbett said.
Turner was ordered held in the county jail in New City on $75,000 bail set during his arraignment on the charges in Spring Valley Justice Court. He is to return to court on Thursday, according to his attorney, Kenneth Gribetz.
Gribetz on Monday evening maintained his client's innocence.
"We want to state, without commenting further, that Mr. Turner intends to enter a plea of not guilty and that we intend to litigate this matter in court," Gribetz said.
A felony hearing will be held on the charges and on the setting of bail. The hearing could be adjourned and the case moved to criminal court in New City if the case is presented to a Rockland grand jury and an indictment is returned this week.
While Turner calls himself a rabbi, Corbett said police have no definitive information on his rabbinical status.
Rabbi Noson Leiter said Turner might have been educated in yeshiva but he doesn't lead a congregation and isn't a religious leader in the community. Leiter is a member of Torah Jews for Decency in Monsey.
Leiter said Turner has "misused the term rabbi to cover himself for unspeakable, egregious acts."
"The Orthodox and Hasidic community response to his arrest was very positive," Leiter said, adding Turner has been in the community for some time and religious leaders were helpful.
"We're obliged to uproot these people in our midst," Leiter said, "and make sure they don't harm others in the community or outside the community."

Men protecting other men - disgusting - none of them deserve the title of rabbi.

this is really cute & sad to see how Kenny Gribbitz will - at the end - get this so called RABBI Turner back onto the monsey streets, so that he can give rides to all boys/teenagers PRIVATELY IN HIS CAR

Are you guys so stupid as to not read the article? THE RABBONIM OFFERED THE GUY TO THE POLICE! Here's a quote, ""The Orthodox and Hasidic community response to his arrest was very positive," Leiter said, adding Turner has been in the community for some time and religious leaders were helpful.
"We're obliged to uproot these people in our midst," Leiter said, "and make sure they don't harm others in the community or outside the community." I question your guys' intelligence. If you had read the article, you would have seen those, and known that the man wasn't a rabbi in the first place, and that EVERYONE helped to get the bastard out of there.

I am NOT, repeat: NOT defending this guy Turner in any shape or form. And if he did commit the crimes he is accused of, he should stew behind bars until Doomsday.

However, in our society, he is, by Law, innocent until proven guilty.

Why certain Rabbis did not call in the cops is another issue which is pretty complex. It's a mixture of "Rabbis know better", insularism, and trying to "avoid Chillul Hashem", coupled with the Halacha that a Jew should not "masser" other Jews. Even the latter is problematic, because those harsh and often cruel Greek, Roman, Muslim and other punishments for Jews who were "massered" no longer apply, so we can discuss this until tomorrow with both sides of the argument having pros and cons.

But yes, there is a rather disturbing tendency in the frum communities to try to hush up such situations. The husher-uppers are usually Rabbis - unfortunately. If they only knew that playing it out in the open could save many other kids from being crime victims.

Well, they probably do know but think that their "Shitas" override all else.

Regarding an earlier comment. You are NOT "innocent until proven guilty." you are presumed innocent. For legal purposes he cannot be punished as guilty until after he pleads guilty or is found guilty through a trial. When you have a question about the kashrus of a pot it is not kosher until a rav rules and then it becomes magically trayf. It is the same with a menuval or a sheretz: he gets a trial and a psak by a judge or jury and then the punishment starts, but he was in fact guilty all along.

Now I have heard things but do not have direct facts about Turner so I can only use the words alleged. But if you know enough about what he did why shouldn't you portray as a menuval?

The heading says that rabonim knew about this and kept silent. Where does the article itself mention this? All there is is a vague accusation--they must have known. What utter motzi shem ra! Shame!

These child molesters may as well eat treif or be mechalel shabbos, a few years in jail where they might become a prison b*tch to some 250 lb weight lifter named Jameel or Shakeel might re-educate them
