5-year prison term for US rabbi in corruption case

A once-prominent New Jersey rabbi who pleaded guilty in the state's largest corruption case has been sentenced to a five-year prison term.


Rabbi Eliahu Ben Haim last year admitted using his network of religious charities to conceal more than $1 million in illegal proceeds for a government informant. The 60-year-old Long Branch resident is the former leader of the synagogue Congregation Ohel Yaacob in Deal, 50 miles (80 kilometers) south of New York City. (AP)
