Petah Tikva District Court decided to release Chaim Pearlman to house arrest for 15 days, on Thursday, after rejecting the police's appeal of the decision.

The court accepted one part of the police's appeal, and has forbidden Pearlman from contacting others who are involved in the case.

Pearlman's lawyer, Adi Keidar, said the evidence incriminating Pearlman is weak, and that he will appeal to release Pearlman from house arrest.

Pearlman is expected to leave prison and head to his parents' home in Tekoa on Thursday..
