This statement is published further to several Facebook and email postings from members of the public regarding the matter of Yona (aka Jason) Weinberg.
Yona (Jason) Weinberg was convicted in June 2009 of 8 counts of sex crimes against two 13 year old boys and was sentenced and served up to 13 months in local prison. Weinberg is a registered sex offender under the New York State Sex Offender Registration Act.
Weinberg’s record is publicly available here:
Weinberg is assessed by the NY Criminal Justice Services as Risk Level 3, which is the highest level and means: “high risk of repeat offense and a threat to public safety exists”.
Weinberg is reliably reported to have left the USA in recent months after further similar complaints were filed against him with NYPD.
Weinberg, to the best of our knowledge, currently resides with his wife and family in Har Nof, Jerusalem.
The Israeli authorities are aware of the situation.
The public is urged to be vigilant and take appropriate measures to protect and educate their children, calmly and in a manner appropriate to their age.
Under no circumstances should members of the public take the law into their own hands.
If you believe that a crime is being committed by a sex offender, contact your local law enforcement agency immediately as you would do in any case of suspected criminal activity (Source: NYPD).
