Two More Guilty Pleas In Monsey Torture Scheme

Two more men have pleaded guilty to charges connected to the violent scheme in Monsey that involved eight men torturing Orthodox Jewish men to force them into granting religious divorces to their wives. Avrohom Goldstein and Moshe Goldstein, brothers from Brooklyn, both pleaded guilty in Federal Court, to charges of traveling in interstate commerce to commit extortion, and admitted to restraining and injuring a man in 2011. The Goldsteins face up to twenty years in prison and fines of $250,000 dollars. They will be sentenced in June.
