Mordechai Elon gets sentence with no jail time included

Israel's courts once again prove inept in dealing with sex offenders, as rabbi Mordechai Elon gets a very lenient sentence:
Prominent national-religious leader Rabbi Mordechai Elon, who was convicted of two counts of indecent acts against a minor, was sentenced Wednesday to six months of community service and a suspended sentence of 15 months, across a three-year probation period.

Deputy Jerusalem District Court President Judge Hagit Mack-Kalmanovitch, who presided over the sentencing hearing, also ordered Elon to pay his victim 10,000 shekels in damages. [...]

Commenting on his sentence, Elon said: "I have been performing community service for 40 years and I will be happy to continue doing so until I'm 120 years old, whether on the state's orders or not."
That's a very blatant comment if I ever saw one, that shows no real remorse for his vulgar conduct, and what kind of community service is he going to get anyway? That's not something sex offenders should really be getting.

The Times of Israel has more about the case, and some of the commentors, including religious ones, are rightly disgusted Elon's received a get-out-of-jail-free card. He did not act responsibly during the time he was on trial, and rabbi Chaim Druckman's willingness to go easy on him has also caused considerable harm.
