Former Monsey Man Commuted by President Trump

A former Monsey man was among the 140+ people given a pardon or whose sentences were commuted yesterday by former President Donald Trump. The Times Herald Record says 66 year-old Sholam Weiss was serving an 835-year sentence for racketeering and money laundering by defrauding the National Heritage Life Insurance Company of $450 million. It is believed to be the longest sentence in history for a white-collar crime. A White House statement said Weiss’ sentence was unduly harsh, and noted he is in poor health. Trump also pardoned his former real estate partner and ex-husband of the former Westchester D.A. and current FOX News Channel host, Jeanine Pirro. Albert Pirro was convicted of tax fraud in June 2000, sentenced to 29 months in prison and released in May 2002.
