Chief Rabbi's Son Gets Prison.

And his father is a leader in the religious community?

The Tel Aviv District Court on Tuesday sentenced Meir Amar, the son of Chief Sephardic Rabbi Shlomo Amar, to a prison term of two years and eight months.

As part of a plea bargain, Amar was convicted of kidnapping a youth involved in a romantic relationship with his sister Ayala, as well as abuse of a minor, illegal confinement, extortion, threats, and causing bodily harm.

The court also ordered Amar to compensate the youth with NIS 35,000 (about USD 8,000).

His mother, Mazal Amar, pled guilty to distorting a report on the incident, but was not convicted.

It is hard enough to control one's teenagers, let alone out adult children. At least, unlike his islamist counterparts, he didn't try to kill the boy.
