The Central District Court in Petah Tikva on Tuesday convicted Tal Mor of the hit-and-run killing of cyclist Shneor Cheshin.

The court also convicted Mor of driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol and of abandoning the scene of an accident after he killed Cheshin in a hit-and-run last June.

The judge noted that after Mor's car slammed into Cheshin and dragged him for several meters, Mor fled without offering any help. He later lied and said he had not hit Cheshin at all.

Shneor Cheshin was the son of retired Supreme Court Justice Dr. Michael Cheshin and the grandson and namesake of Shneor Zalman Cheshin, one of the first Supreme Court justices and a former deputy Supreme Court president.
