Ramat Hasharon mayor sentenced to community service for corruption

The Tel Aviv Magistrate’s Court on Sunday sentenced Ramat Hasharon Mayor Yitzhak Rochberger to six months community service for his convictions for fraud, breach of public trust, forging corporate and other documents and using forged documents in a likely
career-ending defeat for the mayor.

The Ramat Hasharon mayor who is due to begin his community service on June 25, was also fined NIS 40,000 and was given a six month suspended jail sentence which would come into effect if he again violated similar crimes in the next two years.

The court also found that Rochberger’s crimes constituted moral turpitude, which means he cannot return to public office for at least seven years, likely ending his career in office.
