Sentence upheld for ex-Georgetown rabbi


WASHINGTON (WUSA9) — Friday, a judge upheld the sentence of a former Georgetown rabbi convicted of voyeurism.

Barry Freundel secretly videotaped dozens of women while they were disrobing in a ritual bath. He pleaded guilty to 52 counts, one count for each of the victims.

The rabbi appeared in court on Friday to argue that the terms of his six and a half year sentence were illegal. A judge, however, upheld his sentence.
