Is a driver's license worth sex? Negev woman says no
By Haaretz Service - November 15, 2005
Police in the Negev have arrested a senior driver licensing inspector and a driving instructor on suspicion of having offered to grant a young woman a license if she agreed to have sexual relations with both of them, Israel Radio reported Tuesday.
It said the driving instructor made the offer to the woman, a resident of the southern town of Netivot, after she failed a licensing test for the third time.
"The instructor proposed that she have sexual relations with him and with the senior licensing inspector, and, in return, she would receive her driver's license," the radio said.
The woman then informed the police, who began an undercover investigation. Detectives amassed evidence against the two on additional cases in which they allegedly arranged to grant licenses in return for favors, it said.
Acting on the advice of detectives, the woman invited the inspector to her apartment Monday night, after the two agreed that he was to have sex with her that night, whereupon she would re-take the driving test next week, and pass.
The inspector arrived at the house, and the ensuing conversation was taped by police who were hiding in the apartment. The officers then jumped from their hiding places and arrested the man, as well as the driving instructor.
