An Israeli court upheld a former minister’s sentence on sexual abuse charges. In Wednesday’s ruling, however, Yitzhak Mordechai’s second sexual harassment conviction was overruled when two of three judges decided that one of the defendants didn’t remember the exact details of the incident. Just the same, the Jerusalem court left intact an earlier decision to sentence Mordechai to an 18 month suspended sentence.
