TRENTON, N.J. (AP) An Orthodox rabbi accused of using brutal tactics to force unwilling Jewish men to divorce their wives was convicted on Tuesday of conspiracy to commit kidnapping.
But the federal jury in Rabbi Mendel Epstein’s case rendered a mixed verdict, acquitting him of attempted kidnapping.
Epstein’s son was acquitted of conspiracy and kidnapping counts. Two other rabbis were convicted of conspiracy to commit kidnapping and attempted kidnapping.
