Yisrael Wallis, who was in 2008 was sent to prison for six years after being convicted in the death of his infant son, will be released early. Wallis, who was 21 when he entered prison, was found guilty of shaking his 3-month-old child to death two years earlier, after being left home alone with the infant and unable to cope with the child’s crying.
The prison parole board decided to wipe one-third from his sentence, as is the norm, because of his good behavior during the four years imprisonment.
Wallis is expected to be released next week, ahead of Rosh Hashanah.
