In hit-and-run-driver Tal Mor's hearing Tuesday, attorney Aviv Sharon, prosecuting, asked the Central District Court in Petah Tikva to hand down a harsh sentence of up to 20 years to Mor.

Mor, a 27 year old joint Israeli and American citizen, was convicted of Cheshin's manslaughter last week. He was also convicted of driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol and of abandoning the scene of an accident, possession of drugs, obstruction of justice and driving without a valid license or insurance.

The attorney dubbed the hit-and-run accident "one of the most ugly and despicable crimes in the book," in which after hitting Cheshin, Mor dragged the cyclist's body for hundreds of meters along the road.
