Haifa University law professor Emanuel Gross, as opposed to Amir, said he thought the chance of the Supreme Court overturning the sentence is slim and the chance of them overturning the verdict is virtually nonexistent. “Lacking much in the way of physical evidence, the conviction was based on the judges’ overwhelming belief in the victims’ version of the story, after hearing testimony from both sides. When it comes to cases of trust and determining who told the truth, there is a standing practice of the higher court not intervening in the lower court’s decision. The justice system as a rule puts its faith in the judges who heard the testimony firsthand, and I can’t see the Supreme Court breaking from that practice in this case,” said Gross.
