Haaretz - June 10, 2004
Yehezkel Atar, 50, convicted of raping a nine-year-old girl, was sentenced yesterday to 10 years in prison by the Tel Aviv District Court. Atar was also ordered to pay the girl NIS 5,000 in compensation for his actions. The sexual assault took place in January last year, when the girl - a friend of the Atar family - slept over at the Atar family home. Explaining their harsh sentence, the judges said Atar had severely undermined the girl's chance to lead a normal life. They also noted that his crime against the girl had involved the use of violence. The judges added that the lengthy jail term was called for in light of the girl's physical and emotional pain and suffering.
