Bill upping prison sentence for rock-throwing moves to Knesset

A bill increasing the penalty for throwing rocks at vehicles to up to 20 years in prison will head to the Knesset after being approved by the Ministerial Committee for Legislation Sunday.

Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked plans to fast-track the legislative process to pass the bill, which is similar to one MK Tzipi Livni (Zionist Union) put forward when she held the justice portfolio.

If it becomes law, the bill will increase the chances of conviction for rock-throwing and up the maximum penalty for to 10 or 20 years in prison, depending on the circumstances.
