September 2, 2010 10:46

Convicted rapist Adrian Schwartz was set to be released from prison on Thursday, but will remain under house arrest for the next year between the hours of 9pm and 6am each day.

Schwartz was convicted in 2009 for raping a child in Jerusalem in 1991. The conviction was Schwartz's second for the crime. He was first convicted in 1992 but was then acquitted after appealing to the High Court of Justice. The original indictment against Schwartz, 66, included seven counts of rape, but he was only convicted of one, for seducing a ten-year-old girl he met on the street and raping her in a warehouse in Jerusalem.
