New York - A New York City man convicted of criminally impersonating his father’s academic rivals in a dispute over the Dead Sea Scrolls will stay out of jail for the time being.

Raphael (RAY’-fee-ehl) Golb was scheduled to start his two-month term Tuesday. He was sentenced last week after some of his convictions were tossed out.

A New York judge decided Monday to postpone the sentence while Golb further appeals his remaining convictions. Prosecutors declined to comment.

Defense Ronald Kuby says Golb’s trial was “fundamentally unfair.” He’s seeking a new trial.

Golb says he merely used satire to support his father, a University of Chicago professor. Golb’s father and other scholars disagree about the scrolls’ origins.

The scrolls contain the earliest known versions of portions of the Hebrew Bible.
