Court decides on lighter sentence for Beinisch shoe thrower

After a hearing at Jerusalem District Court on Sunday it was decided, according to a proposal by the prosecution, that the court will decide a new, lighter punishment for Pinchas Cohen, who was indicted on suspicion of attacking Supreme Court President Dorit Beinisch with his sneakers in January.
A prosecutor representative for Cohen admitted that a lighter sentence would have been enough.
In June Cohen was sentenced to three years in prison.
Lawyer Yuval Kaplinsky said procedures have been put in place to lighten the sentence.
