High Court rejects appeal from serial rapist Benny Sela

The High Court of Justice in Jerusalem on Wednesday rejected an appeal from serial rapist Benny Sela, who was sentenced by the Tel Aviv District Court for harassing one of a series of complainants against him. Sela had requested to be released on probation. Before the decision was handed down, Sela said to reporters, "Everyone must pay a price for his mistakes," but complained "nobody wants to help me."
