Eisemann Defense Files Response To Prosecution’s Appeal

The Eisemann defense team filed their brief today responding to the recent appeal from the prosecution, asking the New Jersey Appellate Court to vacate the recent ruling ordering a new trial.

The prosecution will now have until November 23rd to respond, before the appeals court issues their ruling, deciding whether the judge’s ruling ordering a new trial should stand, or be overturned, and should proceed instead to the sentencing.

It is possible, but not probable that, oral arguments will take place before the ruling.

With the years-long legal saga now set to drag on for an even longer time period, the legal fees will only continue to mount, and a website has been set up where donations can be made.

Please continue to Daven for Osher Ben Chana Frumet.

  1. who is funding the prosecution’s bill? probably the taxpayers. what do they hope to get out of this/ then the taxpayers will have to pay for kosher food in prison? this whole case is antisemitism of the worst kind

  2. not necessarily anti-semitism the prosecutor has a career and a job and must show progress and accomplishment with his prosecutions. Typically lawyers make a plea deal so the prosecutor can show some accomplishment for example a guilty plea the defendant gets off relatively easy .rabbi eismann as a matter of principle refuses to plead guilty and so the prosecutor has nothing to show for all his work… the longer this court case drags on the more desperate the prosecution is to show some value in their work. Not a very good situation.

  3. Berish makes a good point. The situation is going on way way too long. If they can only make a plea bargain and move on with life. The longer this is in the news the bigger and worse it gets for the entire community at large.

  4. Rav Chaim Kanievsky ruled that no plea should be taken under any circumstances and the kovod of Hashem will prevail. This is not easy for Reb Asher and hed rather plea and save the costs but Daas Torah must prevail.

  5. The legal system is incomprehensible. A simple example would be one being mandated to swear to tell the truth and then instructed by the judge to plead guilty to a charge one didn’t commit. Many of us have been subject to this blatant hypocrisy in traffic court.

    • And we plea and move on since we don’t have a limitless amount of time and money… It’s universally understood that a guilty plea is not necessarily a admission of guilt but rather a arrangement….

  6. Every time I read something about this I just get upset. I don’t understand. Is there nothing that the Lakewood Askonim could do in order to get the governor to pardon him or to get the prosecutor to drop the case. Something is not adding up to me.
