Another story from 2014 that didn’t make the headlines:

A polygamist cult leader has been sentenced to 30 years in prison by an Israeli court for sexually abusing his wives and daughters.

Goel Ratzon, 64, had been convicted of a number of sexual offences including rape, indecent assault and incest.

Israeli media reported that Ratzon had 21 “wives” who bore him more than 30 children.
