The state on Monday appealed to the Beersheba District Court to stiffen the lenient sentence of former Deputy Police Commissioner Nissim Mor, who was sentenced in April to 400 hours of community service for sexual harassment and breach of public trust, but with no finding of moral turpitude.

The state requested a finding of moral turpitude, without which it said Mor would be viewed less as a convict and more as a project for rehabilitation. Mor, once second in command of the Israel Police, was charged by the Justice Ministry’s Police Investigations Department in July 2016 with sexually harassing a particular policewoman intensely and with generally harassing a large number of other female officers.
According to the indictment, 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 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.
