Light Punishment for Israeli Rapist

In Israel, a man who raped and sodomized a pregnant woman received a light sentence because the assault was "extremely brief," said judges. Although the woman was late into her pregnancy, and the rape could have severely injured her and her baby, judges gave Reuven Vaknin a brief three-year jail sentence.
