JERUSALEM (AP) — Israel's Supreme Court has reduced the sentence of a former Israeli soldier who passed hundreds of classified military documents to a newspaper reporter.
In its ruling emailed to reporters on Monday, the court said Anat Kamm's original, 4 ½ year-sentence was disproportionate compared to the four months' community service handed down to the reporter to whom she leaked the documents. The sentence was cut by a year, to 3 ½ years.
Kamm began serving prison time on an espionage conviction in October 2011.
Kamm has said she was ideologically motivated to copy military documents from army computers between 2005 and 2007, when she served as a junior clerk in the office of the Israeli commander responsible for the West Bank. Some dealt with military operations against Palestinians.
