Evidently, the two have done such a thing before, because they admitted to having assaulted a Brooklyn man in an effort to extract a divorce in 2011. They each face a maximum of 20 years in prison and up to $250,000 in fines, upon sentencing this month.
Another troubling fact of this case is that knowledge of these men came about because of an undercover sting operation. The sting involved an FBI agent communicating with two rabbis, likely in the same religious sect as the two brothers, seeking help in getting a divorce, which is known as a “get.” The rabbis could also go on trial.
