Five convicted in group rape of mentally disabled woman
By David Ratner, Haaretz Correspondent
Haaretz - March 23, 2004
Five Haifa-area residents were convicted Tuesday at the Haifa District Court of rape and sodomy of a young mentally disabled woman, and of confining her.
The five are Avi Mizrahi, Zora Flagashvili, Mordechai Mizrahi, Gil Dahan and David Mizrahi. Another defendant, Moshe Grots, was convicted of assisting in the rape and the confinement, and Moshe Dahan was acquitted of all charges.
The men were convicted of performing group rape on a 20-year-old woman from the center of the country, who was staying in May 2002 in the Haifa Bay area. The young woman was first persuaded to perform intercourse with two of the men.
Afterwards, all five men had intercourse with the woman, who was injured in the act and required hospitalization.
Dahan, who was also accused of rape, was acquitted of all charges due to a police technical fault: he stood out at the lineup because he was the only on it with his hair tied up.
