Why do we offer the gold badge of honor to Judge Ingram? Because, he did not succumb to the pressure of a tight-knit Jewish community when they tried to disregard the sexual abuse inflicted on one of their community’s children. A 12 year old child was sexually assaulted for 3 years by one their trusted “religious therapists” that was supposed to be counseling the child on Jewish religion. The fact that this pedophile, and predator was a person held in high esteem in the Hasidic community was irrelevant to his sentencing as far as Judge Ingram was concerned. “The message should go out to all victims of sexual abuse that your cries will be heard and justice will be done,” the Judge noted aloud just prior to handing down a 107 year sentence for the Jewish communities “religious therapist”. I repeat my claim that “a pedophile is a pedophile is a pedophile is a pedophile” I am relieved that Judge Ingram agrees, and is a man that is courageous, and independent of the shameful attempts to influence, and pressure the judicial system. We are grateful to have such an honorable, and fair defender of the children in the corner of righteousness. Judge Ingram is honored with the best of the best in his profession. Welcome to the list of honored Judges that are fighters for the young, innocent, and defenseless. Please accept the gratitude, and gold badge of honor for your contribution to eradicating child sex abuse.
