Former deputy police commissioner Nissim Mor was sentenced on Sunday to 400 hours of community service and fined NIS 30,000 by the Beersheba Magistrate’s Court for sexual harassment and breach of public trust.
Mor, once the second in command in the country of the entire police force, was charged by the Police Investigations Department (PID) in July 2016 with sexually harassing a specific lower-ranked policewoman intensely, and generally harassing a large number of lower-ranked policewomen.
According to the indictment, which Mor confessed to as part of a plea bargain, he told lower-ranked women he could advance their careers in an effort to get them to interact with him in a sexual manner.
He also sent them sexually charged text messages, made sexually charged verbal comments and met with them outside of work hours in ways that did not conform to his position as their direct or indirect superior officer.
