    Andrew Goodman Gets 2 Years, Will Walk In September With Time Served


    Andrew Goodman, 27, pleaded guilty to 48 counts of sexual abuse.
    Confessed pervert gets just 2 years

    Thursday, July 12, 2012

    An admitted child molester stared at his teenage victim and professed his unending love for him Thursday in front of a shocked Brooklyn courtroom — but still got only two years behind bars.

    The sickening display by Andrew Goodman, 27, came after one of his two victims begged Supreme Court Justice Martin Murphy not to go so easy on the serial pedophile, who'll be back on the streets in two months after time served. Prosecutors also strongly objected to the plea agreement.

    “Letting this man go is a very grave mistake," the boy, now 17, said as his body trembled. “I have no doubt he'll try to do the same thing to other children once he gets out."

    Goodman admitted to sexually abusing the youth and his brother for four years, starting when they were 12 and 13.

    The victim described how his handsome neighbor earned his trust by buying him gifts, taking him to restaurants and alienating him from his parents before pressuring him into having sex.

    "You are the worst thing that ever happened to me," he told the defendant. "You are the devil disguised as a human."

    When it was Goodman's turn to speak, he turned to the traumatized victim and told him "I love you" as the packed courtroom gasped and grunted in disbelief.

    "I did and still do to this day love (you)," the predator added. "I fell in love with you and I wish I never allowed my sexual desires to get in the way of what I valued more, which is your friendship."

    None of that — or pleas by the boys' mother and prosecutor Elizabeth Doerfler, who called the sentence "woefully low" — swayed the judge.

    “You caused a lot of pain to all the complainants," Judge Murphy told Goodman. "The statements that you made today are ill-advised to say the least."

    But without giving an explanation, he meted out the minimum allowable sentence that was agreed to after the former social worker pleaded to the entire 48-count indictment.

    Prosecutors were seeking seven years in prison on each count, which would have added up to a de facto life sentence.

    Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes said the sentence "defies logic and is frankly inexplicable."

    Goodman will likely also have to register as a sex offender for life.

    When he made bail after his 2010 arrest, concerned community members surreptitiously filmed numerous other boys leaving his Flatbush home in the early morning hours.

    No additional cases emerged, but, after hearing about the surveillance, a different judge locked Goodman up in lieu of $1 million bail, meaning he's already served almost his entire sentence.

    The boy described in court “four long and torturous years" in which Goodman groomed him then made him feel "bad and unappreciative" if he didn't succumb to the sexual come-ons.

    As a result of the abuse, the teen said, he quit school, has no friends and is struggling to cope in social situations.

    "This is a very dangerous man," he told the judge. "Not only because of the crimes he committed, but also because he has no remorse."

    The victims' mother and other advocates warned that the lenient penalty will discourage others from going through the hardship of filing complaints. Brooklyn prosecutors have railed against intimidation some accusers face when bringing abuse allegations in the Jewish community.

    Andrew GoodmanGoodman pleaded guilty to multiple felonies, including oral sex and anal sex with the victims. He could have been sentenced to dozens of years in prison. Instead, Judge Martin P. Murphy refused to allow the victim's parent or the A.D.A. to speak, and instead sentenced Goodman to 2 years in prison followed by 10 years of supervised release. With time already served, Goodman will be free in September. Goodman is a former Ohel employee.

    That's Brooklyn justice, apparently.

    This guy defiantly told the Judge and court, "that the age of consent is different in other countries."

    Too bad Jessica's law is not in effect in New York and New Jersey so these idiot judges can't eff up like this.

    Evidently this judge has a history of bizarre sentences. Needs to be removed. Now.
