Abu Khdeir murderers convicted, sentenced

One of the minors who murdered 16-year-old Mohammed Abu Khdeir in 2014 was sentenced to life in prison on Thursday, while another, believed to have had a lesser role in the crime, was sentenced to 21 years imprisonment. The two, both 16 years old now, also received a NIS 30,000 fine each.

The State Attorney and the Abu Khdeir family demanded they both be given life, but their attorneys claimed that they were influenced by the main perpetrator, Yosef Ben David. The court determined that Ben David committed the crime, but his conviction is pending a psychiatric evaluation.
