After the original conviction against Jesse Friedman, the Nassau County DA was pressured into conducting a reinvestigation of the case, according to Newsday. The Review Team took three years to conduct the full reinvestigation, that resulted in the reaffirmation of Jesse Friedman’s guilty conviction. The report also blasted filmmaker Andrew Jarecki for being biased in Friedman’s favor.
When the Nassau Country District Attorney submitted the results of their reinvestigation of Jesse Friedman, the report revealed Jesse Friedman was caught with pornographic material in his prison cell. According to the New York Post,
“Prison disciplinary records show that Friedman was caught possessing a magazine photograph depicting two nude children, and was punished for writing allegedly fictional accounts of bestiality, incest and child rape…”
The reinvestigation determined that original sanctions against convicted child molester, whom director Andrew Jarecki continues to advocate for, were accurate and were upheld.
