The lighter punishment for the attacker of the 10-year-old girl in the Negev: "In his investigations he said it was an act against Jews only"

In an interview with 103fm, the lawyer representing the girl protested the light sentence the 17-year-old Bedouin who attacked her received - 5 years in prison. According to her, there were indications that he attacked her for nationalist reasons, and explained that the plea deal reached was due to the fact that the girl's family did not want to compel her to testify

Walla! Staff, News, 10/11/2022

Last night (Wednesday) a young man from the Bedouin diaspora, who was convicted of committing sexual offenses against a 10-year-old girl when he broke into her home in one of the Negev settlements, was sentenced to five years in prison. Apart from the prison sentence, the court imposed on the young man a compensation of 70 thousand shekels. In an interview on 103fm, attorney Roni Aloni Sadovnik, who represents the girl, protested the light sentence, claiming that the act was done on a nationalistic basis.

"It's an attempt at sodomy and an obscene act," she says. "We had to reach a plea agreement. I represent the girl and the family in the criminal proceedings and in the proceedings before the Ministry of Defense. Since the precedent we set with the Lipaz girl in 2006 who was murdered and raped, an 8-year-old girl in Beit Shemesh, we have waged a struggle of almost 7 years to recognize the girl as a victim of terrorism."

Why do you think this is a nationalist problem?

"You have to look at things as a whole. There is a serious trend that has already been identified, of large groups, of Bedouin tribes, that find identification with the Palestinian struggle."

Is there any indication of this regarding that minor?

"There are indications. One indication, for example, is that this is a guy who does not have a problem with pedophilia... and he never raped anyone or attacked small children. Suddenly he entered a house, and in his investigations he said that this is a daily act for them, only for Jews. They are not entering Arab villages, they don't steal vehicles, equipment or hurt Arabs. They only hurt Jews, and I think that has meaning. I also understood data of thousands of live shootings in the area, every day, it's a state of war. There is a war in the Negev between Arabs and Jews."

5 years in prison is a lenient sentence?

"Certainly. The punishment for an act and an attempt to commit an act is the same punishment. The sentence should be at least 20 years for each of the transfers he was convicted of, so how did we get to five years?"

The court is always considerate when it comes to a minor

"That's true, but it's impossible for this to be such an excessive consideration. The entire legislation regarding the punishment of minors should be changed, because there is a 10-year-old minor and there is a minute for the 18-year-old."
