    A Satmar counsellor found guilty of 59 counts of sexual abuse of a young girl has been sentenced to 103 years in jail.

    Nechemya Weberman, 54, of Brooklyn, New York was found guilty of abusing a girl for three years, which began when she was 12 years old. The girl had been sent to him for religious counselling because she was deemed “rebellious” by her Orthodox school.

    Weberman was sentenced in a Brooklyn court on Tuesday.

    The girl was forced to perform sexual acts by Weberman and to watch pornography and then “copy what was in the porn”.

    In a statement read out in court, the victim said: "I really hope and pray this case will set a precedent for others.”
