In Part 6 of the Gan Rivkah Center investigation we looked into Hadassah Robeson’s past and the origins of the shelter. But we didn’t really get much into her husband Vladimir because there wasn’t much we could find on him. Then we stumbled upon something that required an update, because it turns out that Vladimir Yakubovsky has a bit of a legal history.
This was a 1999 arrest for trafficking heroin while living in Boston. We have confirmed it was him, but online court records are hard to find from that era. Could he be reformed by now? Sure. But the fact of the matter is that anyone who’s ever been arrested for trafficking heroin probably shouldn’t be allowed to run a boarding house for at-risk homeless women.
Hadassah’s son David, who has already provided a plethora of damning accusations against his mother, has elected to keep communicating with the woman who keeps giving us screenshots of the messages he sends her. Here’s what he had to say about his stepdad.
“He was let go free of any charges.”
I guess we’ll just have to take your word for it David/Russell. All I know is, he was living in an apartment in Boston in which over 3 pounds of heroin were being stored and sold to people, and the Boston Police witnessed this happening. Is it possible he could’ve had no idea that this was happening where he lived? I guess it’s about as likely as having no idea that his emotionally abusive wife was fraudulently collecting donations for her “shelter” while forcing the residents to pay her so that her adult children could live there rent free.
The son seems isn’t happy that the information he volunteered to a stranger ended up on Turtleboy, yet he keeps talking to the person who gave us the screenshots.
He seems normal.
Also, on top of my court date next week with Hadassah for the restraining order it looks like I’m gonna be sued by this woman too.
We had a good run while it lasted though didn’t we?
