NEW YORK (JTA) -- The U.S. Department of Justice again has declined to intervene in the sentencing of a convicted kosher meat executive.
Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer wrote in a letter Monday that concerns about the sentencing of former Agriprocessors executive Sholom Rubashkin were best raised with the presiding judge in northern Iowa, Linda Reade, or with local federal prosecutors.
The Brooklyn District Attorney's office expressed disappointment Thursday after the Israeli Supreme Court ruled not to extradite alleged child molester Abraham Mondrowitz.
"We are disappointed by the decision," said Jerry Schmetterer, director of public information for the DA's office, which had been seeking Mondrowitz's extradition. "We are working with the U.S. Department of Justice and the Israel Ministry of Justice to see what remedies are available."
