An Israeli man who sexually molested five children, including four brothers, at a Jerusalem Talmud Torah where he taught was sentenced to fifteen years in prison Tuesday by the Jerusalem District Court. Nachman Borenstein, who served as a teacher's aide at the religious school where the attacks took place, was convicted in the same court earlier this year. In an unusual move, the court rejected a plea bargain agreement the sexual molester had reached with the state attorney's office whereby he would only have served nine years in jail, handing down the stiffer sentence in its stead. The sexual predator was also ordered to pay the children NIS 120,000 each in compensation.
