A Tel Aviv District Court on Tuesday convicted a 36-year-old man of using internet chat software to make contact with and perform sexual acts on a 13.5-year-old girl.
According to the court's findings, Moshe Sarnaga used a false identity, claimed he was only 24 and offered to spend a day with his victim, known only as Alef because of a gag order, at the beach in order to trick her into meeting with him.The court decision states that Saranaga met Alef at a mall on April 13, 2010, telling her he would drive her on his motorcycle to the beach. Instead Sarnaga stopped at his home near the beach and told Alef to come upstairs with him before the beach because he was thirsty.
Once in his home, the Court found that Sarnaga sexually assaulted Alef. The Court also convicted Sarnaga of obstruction of justice in telling Alef not to tell anyone about what had occurred and instructing her about how to leave his home in a way that would not arouse suspicion.
