Two Rehovot men were convicted Sunday of committing a violent robbery on a taxi driver as a result of which he lost one of his eyes.
The two - Ophir Pinko, 21, and Gera Morosich, 19 - were found guilty as part of a plea bargain on charges of robbery, grievous bodily harm and conspiracy to commit a crime for the February attack on 72-year-old Yaakov Mizrahi, in which they used a screwdriver.
The prosecution was expected to ask the Petah Tikva District Court to sentence the two to eight years in jail.
