      Jack Teitel Appeals Sentence to Supreme Court

      Ya'akov "Jack" Teitel appealed to the High Court of Justice, Tuesday, the two life sentences plus 30 years in prison handed down last month by a district court for his convictions on two counts of killing Arabs and three counts of attempted murder.

      The American-born resident of the Samarian (Shomron) community of Shevut Rachel claimed the district court ignored determinations of his mental state and therefore, his responsibility for his actions.
