Rubashkin sentencing set


(JTA) — Sentencing for a former official of the Agriprocessors kosher meatpacking plant has been set for April 28. 

Sholom Rubashkin is facing a maximum of 27 years in prison based on recommendations by federal prosecutors when he is sentenced in U.S. District Court in Iowa on 86 counts of financial fraud, according to reports.

Rubashkin asked the U.S. Supreme Court  last week to review his conviction and revisit the case.

He has been held in prison since his November conviction after being denied bail.
