On Tuesday, 39-year-old Adi Mahlouf was sentenced along with co-defendant Avraham Zehavi, over nine months after they were arrested in a bust that got widespread media coverage in Israel. Zehavi received a one-year prison sentence after police duped him into picking up a fake bomb from an undercover cop, and a third suspect, Shai Waro, has yet to be sentenced.
