Galina Goriatzkin was sentenced to 18 months in prison on Thursday after being convicted of abusing twin baby brothers in the Tel Aviv District Court. The twins' parents secretly filmed the 31-year-old nanny, a resident of Petah Tikva, in February 2005. They were shocked when they saw Goriatzkin hitting and shaking the seven-month-old infants. The court also heard how she threw them down on the sofa with force, dangled them in the air by their legs and pushed bottles in their mouths. The father of the twins told Maariv that the sentence was far to light for the crimes committed by Goriatzkin.
