The Tel Aviv Traffic Court sentenced Barak Hirschson, the son of former Treasury Minister Abraham Hirschson, to seven months in prison for driving under the influence, criminal negligence and causing severe injury.
Hirschson and his 24-year-old girlfriend were thrown off his motorcycle when he crashed into a sidewalk nine months ago. His girlfriend was critically wounded. His blood alcohol level was found to be twice the legal amount during the accident. Last month, he confessed to the charges against him. (Naama Cohen Friedman)
