Jonathan Braun ran an international marijuana dealing operation out of his parents house in Staten Island. Hell’s Angels smuggled Braun’s marijuana through an Indian reservation on the Canadian border and sold pot all over the United States. Braun was clearing $6 million in greenbacks a week. When the Feds were closing in, Braun fled to Canada, and then to Israel. The Israelis sent Braun back to the United States, where he turned himself in to the Feds.
Braun pleaded guilty in 2011 and has been cooperating with the Feds ever since he signed a plea agreement. Braun’s sentencing has been postponed for the last 8 years, until now. Braun was sentenced this past Wednesday.
Braun has been on house arrest at his parents house in Staten Island for the past eight years. While on home confinement with an ankle bracelet Braun married Miriam Hurwitz. Braun sired three children with Miriam while Braun was wearing an ankle bracelet.
The Feds provided Braun with many perks while he was on home confinement. You can read about these Braun benefits by clicking this link: BraunPerks Braun got permission to leave his home confinement to attend his engagement party at his in-laws house. The Feds gave Braun permission to go to the Ohel in order to receive a blessing from the Rebbe, permission to travel to the Diamond District to help pick out the wedding ring, permission to get fitted for a tux, permission to attend his sheva brachos, and permission attend Lamaze classes with Miriam. Braun was also allowed to go house hunting with Miriam. Even the Feds have their limits with drug rats.
Braun’s co-defendant Brian Guariglia got killed in a mysterious motorcycle accident in Staten Island. Guariglia’s death was ruled an accident by the Staten Island police. Braun’s co-defendant Akiva Saltzman, was found with a bullet in his head inside of a torched automobile in Los Angeles.
Braun’s attorney John Meringolo argued to Judge Kiyo Matsumoto that Braun be granted mercy and not get 30 years in the Big House. You can read the memo by clicking the link below:
Braun’s Attorney argued: “Since his arrest and release on bail, Mr. Braun has consistently maintained employment. Currently, Mr. Braun works as a manager and risk analyst at a private lending company, Richmond Capital Group, LLC. Prior to his present employment, Mr. Braun worked as a senior funding specialist and director of sales and marketing at another lending company, Pearl Capital Rivis Ventures, LLC.”
Braun was employed in the cash advance business. In other words, Braun had a job as a legal loan shark.
Braun’s sentencing was originally scheduled for July 10th, 2018. The July 10th sentencing date was rescheduled for September 20th, which was also rescheduled. Judge Matsumoto rescheduled Braun’s sentencing because Braun used strong arm tactics to collect on his cash advances while he was on supervised release.
Rabbi Avraham Lesches, of Crown Heights said that Braun threatened him for not paying on his loan. Lesches got a restraining order against Braun. Braun allegedly told Lesches: “Do you know who I am? I know everyone in your Chabad-Lubavitch community. I am going to come down there and beat the shi* out of you at 770 Eastern Parkway… I am going to hang papers all over the lampposts in Crown Heights stating that you are a liar and a thief… I am going to make you bleed, you are going to regret the day you met me… You had the audacity to send that cun* Rachel Plaut, Esq. who do you think she is? She obviously does not know how this business works. Are you on your knees? Can you suck? Suck my dic*.”

At Braun’s sentencing US Attorneys tried to get Judge Matsumoto to seal the entire proceedings to the public. Prosecutors don’t want the public to see how the Feds conduct their investigations. If the public knew about all the games, shenanigans and Federal laws that the FBI and prosecutors at the Justice Department break during their investigations there would be a revolt. A revolution. Judge Matsumoto would not agree to seal the proceedings. I heard that the Federal prosecutors had off the record discussions with Judge Matsumoto and requested that Braun not do any jail time for his cooperation. Even Sammy the Bull had to do some jail time. Judge Matsumoto slammed Braun with 10 years in Otisville. Braun already did a year and a half when he was first busted. Braun is down to 8.5 years to the door. With good behavior he will get out in 7.5 years. Braun will be eligible for the Brooklyn halfway house in about 6.5 years.
I am the only news site to publish the original Federal court order of incarceration issued by Judge Kiyo A. Matsumoto sending Braun to Otisville for ten years: “AUSA Craig Heeren.

After Mshulem Jacobowitz left Otsiville under Trump’s First Step Act a few months ago there has been a void in Jewish leadership. My sources have informed me that Michael “Micky” Schlisser has filled the void. Micky is an older guy with long hair. This is Micky’s second time in Otisville, both times he was involved in investment fraud. Micky has heart problems. Micky tried to stay out of jail by submitting copies of his medical records. It didn’t work. Micky still got 84 months. Guys say he is effeminate, which is embarrassing. It makes all Jew felons look bad, myself included. What self-respecting Jewish inmate would let himself get ordered around by a broken down old fagela? At least Mshulem had street cred. Mshulem was a Satmar raised on the streets of Williamsburg. Mshulem’s life was threatened when he converted to Lubavitchism. Mshulem yelled, screamed and threatened the Jews all the time, including myself. Even the Jew drug gangsters and mobsters respected Mshulem. When Braun arrives in Otsiville there will be a new Head Jew In Charge. Braun is young and violent and already did time in MDC with street thugs. Braun will take Micky out in a New York minute. Stay tuned. Shabbat Shalom. Moshiach Now!
