Tel Aviv District Court on Thursday sentenced a married couple to five years each in jail on charges of sexually molesting their baby.

The baby was nine months old when social workers removed him from his parents care and put him up for adoption.

The court found the couple guilty of perpetrating indecent acts on the infant in circumstances of rape.

The acts were uncovered when the husband installed cameras in the house without his wife's knowledge to prove his claim that she was beating him. The wife had previously filed assault complaints against him. However, the film disclosed the treatment of the baby by the mother and the fact that the father witnessed her actions and encouraged her to carry them out.
