A young man was convicted of a brutal robbery of an elderly woman, but would only want service work for the hard act. The young man was convicted of violent robbery of an elderly woman, using pepper gas, and despite refusing to extradite his unidentified robbery member, a district court (Central District) today sentenced him to service work only.
The robbery offense carries a minimum of 18 months in prison and up to 36 months. District Court Judge Dana Marshak Merom explained the decision to facilitate with the defendant due to the rehabilitation procedure he underwent.
According to the young indictment, the 22-year-old robbed the elderly woman in July 2017 at a Petah Tikva shopping center after the two ambushed a potential victim. "The defendant approached the complainant, contacted her, pulled out pepper spray and sprayed its contents on her face, while holding the complainant's case and pulling it tightly until it was torn and dropped from her hands. The complainant sprayed pepper gas again in her face and hands, and fled. "

In total, the bag contained an ID card, a wallet containing NIS 200 cash, a credit card and a multi-line card. The judge sentenced him to 9 months of service work, 12 months of probation and compensation to the elderly for NIS 5,000.
Attorney Attorney Nir Jaslowitz said: "I welcome the verdict given by the court. To my delight, the court found it appropriate to prioritize the defendant's rehabilitation matter over the defendant's desire to impose a harsh and burdensome punishment on all defendants. "
