A former counselor at a boarding school in Bnei Brak who was convicted of raping two minors has been released early from prison, according to a television report on Thursday.

Yael Gavrielov pleaded guilty in 2018 to the charges of rape, sodomy, and indecent acts toward two girls at the school, aged 11 and 15 at the time.

She received a four-year prison sentence as part of a plea deal, but the parole committee decided to deduct a third of her sentence, the Kan public broadcaster reported.

The decision was made despite the opposition of the attorney’s office and the victims, the report said.

Gavrielov’s attorney, Avi Chimi, said in response that her early release was “correct, proper, and just.”

“My client admitted her actions, compensated the complainants, and, importantly, she underwent a significant rehabilitation process and was released,” he added.
