The mother of convicted serial rapist Benny Sela is suspected of attempting to sneak him pornographic materials. Sela is serving a 35-year prison sentence for raping 13 women.
Police suspect that the attempt was made during a court hearing at Petah Tikva Magistrates' Court, where Sela met with her son and requested permission to hand him court documents.
The judge granted the permission and the mother handed a file to Sela's attorney, who in turn passed it on to the prison guard watching over the rapist.
But the file was closely scrutinized by the prison guards, whose suspicions were aroused by a cardboard filler to which aluminum foil had been taped. Upon unwrapping the foil they discovered two CDs which, when played, were found to contain porn films.
The Prison Service immediately confiscated the materials and filed a complaint with the police against Sela's mother. Sela, for his part, is to be subject to disciplinary measures for attempting to smuggle forbidden materials into prison. Visits and phone call privileges may be revoked in consequence.
