In a plea bargain agreement, former judge Osnat Alon Laufer pleaded guilty in Tel Aviv District Court on Monday to charges of harassment and violation of privacy. Alon Laufer had served on the bench of the Bersheba family court. She was charged with using a private detective to get hold of the list of phone calls on her boyfriend's cellular phone because she suspected that he was having an affair. She also harassed the woman she suspected of having the affair with her boyfriend. The state agreed to drop more serious charges including conspiracy to commit a crime. The two sides did not reach agreement on what the former judge's punishment should be.
