Prosecution closes cases against 2 soccer players suspected of sex with minors

The state prosecution says it has closed cases against two Maccabi Tel Aviv soccer players who were suspected of statutory rape in engaging in sexual relations with minors.

Omer Atzili and Dor Micha have both also played for Israel’s national team.

It had previously been reported that the cases against the two, who were suspended from the team while the investigation was held, would likely be closed. Associates of the players previously told the Haaretz daily the girls presented themselves as 17, adding they had text messages proving this.
