David Kugman, one of Elior Chen's four disciples was charged with 20 years in prison on Tuesday. Two others, Avraham Maksalchi and Shimon Gabai, will spend 17 years in prison.

The Jerusalem District Court charged Kugman, Maksalchi and Gabai with shaking children, handcuffing them, feeding them feces and attaching them to ovens.

Another disciple, Ro'i Tzoref, was charged with two and a half years, because he played a smaller role in the acts.
