It is only six years because he did not intend to kill her. What he intended was as cruel in my opinion: He shot her in the punching hand, the foot and the knee. His intent was to make her a cripple.

However, in terms of law, this only boiled down to a conviction for grievous bodily harm as well as attempted aggravated assault. Woulf probably have been aggravated assault if she had not recovered.

Of course, we may be convinced that 6 years are too little for these crimes.
In any case, I just wanted to clarify because I want you to understand that the sentence would have been higher, if it had been proven that he attempted to take his daughters life.

Six years! I hope the coward gets killed before that embarrassment of a sentence is up?

6 years?!? No wonder why criminals do what they do. No fear of major consequences. How about death sentence over a slow and painful 6 day period.

A six year sentence is a joke. Best wishes Rola; you’ve got another fan in me.

Awesome to hear Halabi is able to resume her career. I remember when this happened and thought for sure she’d never fight again. BTW it’s an atrocity that her deranged fundamentalist step father is only serving a six-year prison sentence. This was attempted murder.

I hope she does well!

6 year prison sentence seems a bit lenient.
