The pre-sentencing pleadings in the case of Anat Kamm began in the Tel Aviv District Court on Monday.

Her brother-in-law, Washington Post reporter Samuel Sockol testified as a character witness, stating Kamm assisted him in the past, but never transferred him secret or sensitive security-related information. Her father also testified on her behalf.Kamm was convicted two weeks ago of possession and distribution of secret information after she plead guilty to the offenses as part of a plea bargain approved by the Attorney General’s office.

Additional hearings were scheduled to be heard in the upcoming weeks, during which the sides will summon expert witnesses and argue for what they believe to be a just punishment.

The prosecution did not name a sentence as part of the plea bargain, but have stated that they will request a long prison term.
