A court on Wednesday tossed out two counts of sex abuse against a Brooklyn counselor convicted of child molestation — but he will still rot in jail for the rest of his life.
Satmar Hasidic youth counselor Nechemya Weberman, who abused an underage girl from 2007 to 2010, had two of the 59 counts leveled against him thrown out by an appellate court.
The two convictions of sexual abuse in the second degree were overturned because the court found the evidence was not sufficient to support guilt in Counts 45 and 46 of the original indictment.
But Weberman, a 57-year-old father of 10, will still spend the next 100 years locked up.
“I am extremely disappointed and upset with the decision,” said Weberman’s attorney, George Farkas.
