Supreme Court reduces Anat Kamm's sentence by 1 year

December 31, 2012 10:11

The Supreme Court on Monday ruled to reduce by one year the four-and-a-half year sentence of Anat Kamm, convicted of stealing IDF documents during her military service and leaking them to Haaretz journalist Uri Blau.

The court decided to decrease Kamm's sentence after she issued an appeal of her October 2011 sentence.

Kamm, now aged 25, and who worked as a journalist after her army service for the Walla news portal, was convicted in February 2011 in a plea bargain under which she pleaded guilty to gathering and storing more than 2,000 classified military documents during her mandatory army service.

She also admitted to transferring the classified documents to Blau, a political affairs reporter for Haaretz, who used the classified material as the basis for two articles in late 2008.
