As of July 3rd, 2023, Dovid Wasserman was incarcerated at Rikers Island's West Facility, which is designated for medical care for inmates who request medical accommodations as per human rights laws.
Dovid Wasserman was sentenced to six mos in prison due to outstanding child support payments. A review of his case will be held by Judge Prus in 90 days.
The "purge" amount, is $49,000 and can be paid at any time. Dovid retains the right to request that a Gett be drafted in exchange for the forgiveness of the child support payments.
We hope and pray that the purge is not paid and that Dovid Wasserman uses his time in custody to come to terms with the end of his marriage.
It's important to note: resorting to the secular court systems for issues pertaining to religious marital disputes, is not only traumatic, deeply painful and frightening, but it is NOT a guaranteed path to obtaining a Gett.
May Dovid and his family be liberated swiftly.
