Two Convicted Of Scheming To Kidnap, Sexually Exploit Children From Region


Two men have been convicted of a salacious scheme to kidnap two area children from their mother and smuggle them across the border into Mexico to be a part of a sexual relationship in the region, federal authorities announced.


Nachman Helbrans, age 39, and Mayer Rosner, age 45, US citizens from Guatemala, were convicted following a four-week jury trial of child sexual exploitation offenses and kidnapping in Sullivan County.


US Attorney Damian Williams said that the two were found complicit in scheming to kidnap a 14-year-old girl and 12-year-old boy from their mother in Woodridge, then smuggling them across the border to reunite the girl with her adult “husband” to allow them to continue their illegal relationship.
