Tischler, a radio host who is now running for City Council, was arrested in October on charges of unlawful imprisonment of a journalist and member of the Hasidic community. He pled guilty to inciting a riot, one of four charges that he drew during a week of turbulent protests in Borough Park last fall when the heavily Orthodox Brooklyn neighborhood was placed under tighter restrictions due to rising COVID-19 cases there.
Explaining his decision to plead guilty, Tischler told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency Friday, “I did it for the community.”
“I will do 10 days of community service even though each week I do about four, five or six days of community service,” he said.
“Heshy loves helping people and he does community service every day,” said Sara Shulevitz, one of Tischler’s lawyers.https://vinnews.com/2021/05/07/pleading ... y-service/
