 (BYRON SMITH/NEW YORK DAILY NEWS)
A Brooklyn math tutor charged with repeatedly violating a six-year-old student is expected to go to trial in the fall.
Moshe Friedman was hired by the young boy’s parents to conduct in-home tutorials in 2013. Instead, for over 10 months, Friedman allegedly repeatedly assaulted and sexually abused the child.
Friedman, 30, was arrested in January 2015 for first-degree sexual conduct against a child and other shocking charges.
After several routine court appearances, prosecutors informed Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice Raymond Guzman on Wednesday that they are ready for trial in the fall.
According to court documents, Friedman allegedly hit the child in the back of the head, causing his glasses to fall off and injuring his hand.
On another occasion, while the boy’s hand was in a cast, Friedman allegedly followed him into the bathroom and violated him, according to the criminal complaint.
Friedman allegedly sexually assaulted the boy, shoved a rag in his mouth and threatened him with a gun.
"You'd better not tell your parents or I'll kill you and your family," Friedman allegedly said to the boy.
If convicted on the top charge, Friedman faces up to 25 years in prison.
Friedman and his attorney Arthur Aidala both declined comment outside court.

If true... Another monster that should not be able to walk society again

How do you determine if it's true?

Are you serious? Why would a Chassidish innocent 6 year-old boy, make up such a story?
So far this 6 year-old has been questioned by 6 different police officers on different occasions and has never yet changed his story one iota!

mmz said...

And how would you know this?
I happen to know otherwise. I happen to know that the story changed literally three times.
As did the fathers.
And by the way only two police officers are involved, and only one of then interviewed the boy.

I know this from the DA"s office, something that any citizen can do, by picking up the phone and calling the DA in charge...
BTW, you are a liar .... because only 1 police officer actually questioned him, it was the DA detectives that subsequently followed up and believe that they have a strong case...
The father's story can change because he wasn't the victim ...

mmz said...

Ah, so you know enough to understand that the father kept changing the story. In terms of location, time, and severity. If you actually heard his testimony, youd admit that the allegations are absurd. Literally.
The DA's office has their aagend. Of course they're going to say they have a good case!

Dusiznies said...

what do you mean "you admit"
I'm not a defendant in this case, the 6 year old is...and he has not changed his story ...
The "DA has an agenda" Please enlighten us ... what's the agenda?
Friedman is a sexual pervert according to the DA and has to be taken off the streets...the sooner the better!

mmz said...

Moshe Friedman is not a sexual offender. Never was, and probably never will be.
The child testimony did change overtime periods it change from the first interview with the police officer until he went to the grand jury. A lot of details changed.
The DA's office obviously doesn't want you to know that, because if you would you'd question their integrity.


The DA's office obviously has an agenda, if they lose the case it looks very bad for them. I'm sure even you can understand this.

MMZ
You must take us all for a bunch of idiots .
Children do not make up stories ...and you wouldn't possibly know what he said to the grand jury because that's confidential...

mmz said...

No, but some of us are useful idiots.
I know what the grand jury minutes are, based on first-hand knowledge. You see, unlike you, I've taken the Liberty to speaking to both sides. Both to the DA and the lawyer.
And by the way, grand jury minutes are not confidential, the defense team has acsess them.
The Jencks Act, 18 U.S.C. § 3500, requires the government to disclose to the defense any statements made by the accused to the grand jury, and, with respect to non-party witnesses, that after a witness has testified on direct examination at trial, any statement made to the grand jury by such witness be disclosed to the defense.

Dusiznies said...

MMZ
I just checked with the DA! He said that the testimony for the grand jury remains sealed because the child is a juvenile!
The defense will get it immediately before trial..
So I guess you are related very closely to the pervert and want to dan lkaf zchus ...but since he is alleged to have molested a child...I wouldn't trust this guy with my children and grandchildren ...the public should stay away from him!

mmz said...

I don't know which DA you're talking about, obviously not one related to this case. the fact is that the defense has it
I have a feeling that you have a friend in the business and you're hearing bad information. I've spoken with the da numerous times.

Children make up stories all the time and confuse reality with fantasy. That's why they love make believe story books so much, children are notorious liars

Dusiznies said...

A child made up a story that he molested him? Unlikely
Let's see what the jury says
I see that you are close to the guy ... Tell him to plead guilty otherwise he will wind up like Weberman and get life

Anonymous said...

Maybe somebody is influencing this kid. and DAs are notorious for prosecuting innocent people all the time. Before a jury convicts, this story is just slander.

Dusiznies said...

And maybe the child is telling the truth and he did it
And in that case he should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law and as the חפץ חיים said מצוה לפרסם

I read this with great respect for Dus Iz Nies and equally great contempt for the trolls here. Just in case anyone lacks access to the Internet, victims overwhelmingly do not lie. You claim to be frum but you would sacrifice a little innocent neshama. Shame on you. May HaShem save you. You are filth.

Nobody should be tutoring without a parent present. Like seeing a Doc., a nurse or parent is always present. This is common sense especially today. Lets wait for the evidence before we convict. That being said we still need to protect our most valuable asset, our kinder from predators. This guy should not be allowed near children until further notice. Remember, in terms of Loshon Hara we can't believe but most still remain aware of the danger. I do not see how anyone today would be a teacher or tutor. Very said indeed. If it's true, he is a monster. If not, then his life is ruined. How do we know the truth?

Danniele, stick to medicine, you're the troll. In our country somebody is innocent until proven guilty and the Internet is equally full of phoney charges against innocent people all the time.Youre convicting already so you're the filth, doctor.

mmz said...

So in your estimation, most claims are true? So what's the point of a judge and jury?Bringing the Torah into this is disgusting. If you would have any self-respect you would see that. Where do you get off saying that according to Jewish law we allow one person's claims to destroy a life? Where?
Is the Torah wrong for demandimg two witnesses??
Its only according to the same society that allows bigamy, adultery and gay marriage to exist. It's only according to a society that thinks that our greatest challenge is getting Target to allow transgender men into little girls dressing rooms. that's who decides what Justice is according to your view. Not the Torah.
Shame on you for bringing your values from the lowest forms of human beings.
Talking about filth. Check the mirror

mmz said...

Would you plead guilty to something you didn't do? I don't think so.

Anonymous said...

doc, you just convicted this man before trial, called people here trolls and have contempt for them and ruled them as filth, nice try, but keep smiling

I know of a neighbor who is a single mother. The father is totally out of the picture. The child literally appears so lonely needing someone to play ball with him or just talk to him. I literally keep my distance. I would never even think of harming a child. But today who knows what you might be accused of. Its sad that one can not do a chesed where it is needed out of fear. It's a shame. Is this where we are holding today? An innocent normal neighbor wont play ball with a lonely neighbor kid. It's for the best, perhaps now predators will get the message that their days are over as predators. Very confused. A kid needs help, and people stay away.

Danielle Blumenthal Ph.D.

The person who argued here with dusiznies was presenting a legitimate argument. Even dusiznies lowered his tone from certainty to likelihood. For you to use insults like calling someone filth for presenting an argument is not becoming for a person with a Ph.D. (or anyone else).

Dusiznies said...

i think that you are Friedman the pervert...
My advice is ..plead guilty ... before other victims come and you'll sit for life...
plead guilty and stop bothering Dr. Blumenthal ....
Next time keep your zipper closed ...that's my advice...
My info from the DA is that you are going to be sitting along time..
Plead guilty

mmz said...

Again, it seems that you have involved someone who does not have intimate knowledge of the case. You obviously have not spoken with the DA of this case, because if you would have, you would know better.
Again, you wouldn't plead guilty to something you didn't do. So why should he?

To mmz, I don't know if this guy is guilty or innocent. But you have to admit that is very strange for a family to go through all this if it's a false accusation. One Hassidic family accusing another of these crimes is very strange. There is nothing to be gained. Children are very smart, and if something happened a kid will speak up. All tutors should tutor with nanny cams. It's better for all parties, children and tutor. Do not even tutor without it. There is nothing that can be gained for a father and mother to go through all this for nothing. Another factor involved is that it's another Chillul Hashem when a Jew with a beard and long coat is dragged to court for some type of crime for all to see. I don't know the persons involved, but it's weird on all accounts.

you should read entire article about someone who was falsely accused. I's By Doniel G. (ChabadInfo.com)
April 11, 2013

The beginning starts with this/

Imagine if you were falsely accused… of being a child molester.

Scary and chilling, isn’t it? Something you think could never happen to you.

Only a real child molester, someone who actually abuses a child, can be nailed for it. It’s inconceivable that a totally innocent person, who never touched a child in his life could be falsely accused. Right?

Wrong.

That’s what I used to think. Until my life plummeted into an utter and complete nightmare, a nightmare that dragged out half a year, and could have been much longer, if Hashem hadn’t intervened.

My name is Daniel. And I am going to give you the synopsis of what happened to me.

But I want to start out with the horrifying fact of how the entire community, save for my family and my closest friends, turned against me in the blink of an eye.

In a fleeting moment, in people’s eyes I was no longer a Jew, let alone a human being — I was regarded as a monster, an out-of-control filthy, dangerous beast capable of snatching little children and abusing them…. All for an accusation, made by one individual, of a crime I did not do.

You cannot know what it’s like unless it chas v’shalom happened to you./

Read the rest on this webpage. Don't assume until there's a trial and verdict, otherwise you can destroy someone's life.

I agree with dus many times but not in this case. One cannot assume any guilt without a shred of proof. Having a child testify is far from any proof. If you have kids, you know how they come home from school with stories against their teachers which never even remotely happened. The justice system is very flawed. Take a look at rubashkin and many other cases. Why can't you just wait for the trial,where evidence if there is will be presented.
One thing is for sure, never be with a child yourself. I've hired tutors for my kids and they will only teach in a public place because they are afraid of false accusations.

Danniela you are right and the fact is in the frum chareidi world any victim of abuse that comes forward seems always to be a liar it's a illness of theirs, one of many

Just curious. Is it common to hire math tutors for 6 year Olds? And why Friedman is he a qualified math teacher
