Former Adass Israel School school principal Malka Leifer has been found guilty of six charges of rape, six charges of indecent assault, three charges of sexual penetration of a 16 or 17-year-old and three charges of indecent act with a 16 or 17-year-old.
Malka Leifer was acquitted of nine charges.
This concludes a long-running legal battle in which Leifer and her allies sought to evade justice.
In March 2008, the Adass Israel school board, upon first hearing of the sexual allegations against Leifer, rushed to fly her to Israel in the dead of night two days after she was sacked before she could face charges in Australia.
What resulted was long-drawn extradition proceedings, in which Leifer claimed mental health issues, argued she should not face trial in Australia and exhausted all avenues of appeal.
Her victims Dassi Erlich and Elly Sapper have been vindicated.
Leifer no doubt will receive a heavy sentence to reflect the gravity of her offending.Posted on
