A New York rabbi convicted of molesting his own daughter has been sentenced to 30 years in prison. Monsey rabbi Israel Weingarten was found guilty in March of abusing his daughter through much of her childhood. The trial was traumatic for his victim, now 27. Weingarten acted as his own attorney and put his daughter through a grueling cross examination. Federal Judge John Gleeson told Weingarten Friday that his behavior during the trial had made his crime even worse, saying "You seemed to enjoy yourself in a perverse sort of way." The judge said he would never forget the woman's pain.
