From the start of December 2012 until around the time Raz was indicted on January, 31, 2013, he maintained a relationship with T.H. which included sexual relations, an engagement ring and promises of getting married on March 15, 2013.
Raz had told T.H. that his name was Daniel Rozen and that Shlomo Artzi would sing at their wedding.
On this charge, the court noted that Raz could have been accused of rape, but that the prosecution had only charged Raz with receipt of a benefit under fraudulent circumstances.
The court said it would be somewhat more lenient in sentencing Raz for his crime because he never used violence against T.H. and never swindled her out of money.
Next, Raz created fictional “clients” with all sorts of needs, which he would ask Taam to pay for, but then use for himself.
Raz told Taam that he had a German customer coming to Israel who needed a car, and asked Taam to pay for renting him a car.
Raz then used the car for himself, telling Taam that his “client” was staying in Israel longer than expected. Raz used the car for several months, running up a bill of around NIS 30,000.
In order to manage a biometric security program for another “client,” Raz convinced Taam to buy him an NIS 4,387 I-pod.
Raz also got Taam to rent him office space and a hotel room for a Canadian “client” visiting Israel.
Finally, Raz told Taam that he might get projects from Tamir Pardo, current head of the Mossad, because of his special personal relationship with him.
Raz told the court that, “as a general matter, I am sorry about what I did.”
Besides the prison sentence, Raz must also pay NIS 120,000 to Taam.
