Hanan Goldblatt's rape and sexual misconduct trial was postponed for about year after it was set to begin Wednesday morning at the Tel Aviv District Court. The postponement resulted from an abundance of files overloading the judicial system. A priority was placed on hearing cases in which the defendant is in the court's custody instead of under house arrest as in Goldblatt's case. Goldblatt, a well-known actor, was indicted for allegedly luring six female minors into performing sexual intercourse with him under the false pretense of advancing their acting career. Two weeks he replaced his previous attorney after the two decided to end their contract.
