6 months probation in plea bargain for well-known TA lawyer

August 9, 2011 14:40

The Tel Aviv Magistrates' Court sentenced to six months' probation on Tuesday Haim Stanger, the well-known Tel Aviv lawyer originally indicted on charges of attempting to harm a Family Court Judge and a neighbor.

Stanger was sentenced after agreeing to a plea bargain in which he admitted to the lesser charge of threatening his neighbor, with whom he had a long-time feud.

The amended charge sheet Stanger agreed to in the plea bargain does not include the more serious charges - including an attempt to hire a client to harm a judge - which police and the prosecution originally accused him of.

Stanger caused a stir in the legal community when he was arrested in January and remanded in custody as police investigated allegations that he hired one of his clients, a man with a police record, to harm a neighbor.
