IMPOSTER RABBI MUCHAEL STREICER Is Sentenced To 1 to 3 Years

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance, Jr., announced the sentencing of MUCHAEL STREICER, who conned his victim out of $36,000 by posing as a rabbi promising to buy her a Torah from Israel in 2005, then fleeing the country with her money. STREICER was sentenced on June 29, 2010, to 1 to 3 years in state prison. He made restitution to the victim in the amount of $36,000.

"The defendant took advantage of someone's religious faith for personal gain," said District Attorney Vance. "The defendant's conduct was unethical and, in this case, criminal. This conviction and sentencing bring a measure of justice to a victim whose trust was exploited."

In April of 2010, a jury found STREICER guilty of one count each of Grand Larceny in the Third Degree, Aggravated Harassment in the Second Degree, and Harassment in the Second Degree.

The District Attorney thanked Assistant District Attorney Stacey Cheser, who handled the prosecution under the supervision of Bureau Chief Kerry O'Connell and Deputy Chief of the Trial Division John Irwin.
