After a hearing at Jerusalem District Court on Sunday it was decided, according to a proposal by the prosecution, that the court will decide a new, lighter punishment for Pinchas Cohen, who was indicted on suspicion of attacking Supreme Court President Dorit Beinisch with his sneakers in January.

A prosecutor representative for Cohen admitted that a lighter sentence would have been enough.

In June Cohen was sentenced to three years in prison.

Lawyer Yuval Kaplinsky said procedures have been put in place to lighten the sentence.
