Mixed Verdict In Shomrim Beating Case
A judge has convicted one brother of two charges and cleared the other in the beating of a black teenager while volunteering for their Jewish neighborhood's watch program.
Eliyahu Werdesheim was found guilty Thursday of false imprisonment and second-degree assault. He was cleared of a charge of wearing or carrying a dangerous or deadly weapon with intent to injure.
His brother, Avi, was cleared on all the same charges. They faced up to 13 years in prison if convicted of all three.
