Man indicted for years of sexual abuse of his younger sister

A Tel Aviv court on Sunday indicted a man from central Israel for allegedly raping and beating his sister for more than 15 years, beginning when he was 12 years old, and she was not yet in kindergarten.

According to the indictment, just before the suspect’s arrest, he convinced his younger sister to swallow an unnamed type of medication in order to kill herself, telling her that way he wouldn’t go to prison.

The indictment paints a disturbing picture of abuse that allegedly began in 1998, when the sister was only 4 years old, and the brother 12. Already at that young age the brother “used his authority over his sister and her psychological and emotional dependence on her” to force himself on her, the indictment reads.
