The Jerusalem's Magistrate Court decided on Sunday that Ze'ev Rosenstein, convicted by the United States of conspiring to distribute over 800,000 Ecstasy tablets in the US, could serve out the rest of his jail term in Israel.
The Israel Police tried for years to build a case against the criminal mastermind, but it was US authorities who finally succeeded. Rosenstein was extradited to stand trial in the US in March of last year and was sentenced by a Florida US District court in January.
The 52-year-old Rosenstein was sentenced to 12 years, and has a remaining 10 years left before he is released.
