Likud disqualifies candidate convicted of assaulting woman, breaking into homes

The Likud electoral committee has invalidated the candidacy of David Laniado, the leading candidate in the party’s primary for the spot reserved for a Tel Aviv District candidate.

Media reports last months said Laniado served a year in prison in 2011 for breaking into homes.

Last night, Channel 12 news reported that he was also convicted in 2010 for assaulting a woman while under house arrest, and also attacked a cop and resisted arrest following the incident. He was sentenced to 4.5 months in jail.
