Judge Upholds Rabbi's Sentence Of 6.5 Years For Secretly Taping Women

TOWSON, Md. (WJZ) --A judge upholds Rabbi Barry Freundel's sentence of six and a half years behind bars for videotaping dozens of women as they prepared for a ritual bath.

Rabbi Freundel appeared in a DC federal court Friday for a motion for an illegal sentencing.

Attorneys from Freundel argue that he was wrongly sentenced, which lead to extra prison time.

The 63-year-old was sentence to 45 days for each of the 52 victims he pleaded guilty to videotaping.

Freundel previously taught at Towson University.
