Rabbi Leib Glanz
But Sheriff Gregory Seeley said he hasn’t spoken with Glanz in more than a year — and doesn’t plan to again, since learning Glanz was busted in September in an alleged $220,000 housing-subsidy scam.
“I had to read about it in The Post that he got himself jammed up,” Seeley said. “I just can’t be affiliated with people like that. Period.”
Last week, a judge modified the terms of Glanz’s $50,000 bail after his lawyer wrote that the rabbi “has rendered religious-related services on behalf of Greene County . . . and anticipates doing so in the future.”
The letter to Manhattan federal Judge Kevin Castel noted that the sheriff’s office is located in the town of Catskill, which is beyond the boundaries of where Glanz was allowed to travel.
Then, after The Post learned that Seeley had revoked Glanz’s chaplainship, defense lawyer Alan Vinegrad sent another letter to Castel late Friday.
Vinegrad said his first letter “incorrectly described the nature of the services the rabbi anticipates providing in the future.”
Glanz and his brother were busted last year for an alleged 15-year fraud involving the Section 8 rent-subsidy program for the poor.
