The Haifa District Court sentenced former Hadera deputy mayor Shmuel ("Sami") Levy to six months of community service Sunday, following his conviction in a plea bargain last week of consensual prohibited sex, attempted assault, breach of trust and abuse of power and fraud.

The court also sentenced Levy, the former leader of Shas's Hadera branch, to a further eight months' probation and ordered him to pay compensation totaling NIS 25,000 to the three plaintiffs in the case.

Levy will carry out his community service at the Meir Panim public service institute in Or Akiva.
