Judge Judy Sheindlin’s son, Adam Levy, has been accused of interfering with a child rape case.
The accused is his personal trainer, Alexandru Hossu, who lived in Levy’s home for undetermined amount of time.
Levy is the Putnam County District Attorney. He had to withdrawal from the investigation of this horrific case which involved the raped of a 12 year old girl in 2010.
The county sheriff, Donal Smith says that Adam way trying to unduly influence Hossu’s case.
“He is apparently trying to influence and affect the investigation, which could be perceived as an ethical violation of his official duties and perhaps even as an attempt to undermine it,” Sheriff Smith said.
Levy hit back at the accusations, saying that the Sheriff made “unfounded allegations and misstatements.”
“My office acted properly in every aspect of the investigation,” Levy said.
The victim in now 15 and just recently reported the rapes. Hossu appeared in court last week after his arrest.
He is an immigrant from Russia who’s visa expired 12 years ago and is now living in the USA illegally.
The sheriff explained what he sees as Levy’s involvement in trying to cover up the child rapes.
“In my view, Mr. Levy’s comments and actions would seem to suggest that, if he could have his own way, Mr. Hossu would never have been brought to justice for his crime and Mr. Levy’s relationship with him would never have been brought to the light of public scrutiny,” Sheriff Smith said.
He also claimed that Levy was trying to distract attention “from what this case is really about: the vicious rape of a little girl by a man whom he housed and hired as his personal fitness trainer.”
Judge Judy released a statement about the situation, saying: “The sole focus of this story should be the investigation as to whether a young girl was the victim of a very serious crime.”
I hope Judge Judy whips some sense into her son.
Prayers to the victim of this horrible case. I hope justice is served.
