STORY HIGHLIGHTS
  • Moshe Katsav pulls out of an earlier plea deal
  • He is guilty on multiple charges of rape and sexual harassment
  • He resigned the presidency in 2007 because of the sexual assault allegations

Jerusalem (CNN) — A Tel Aviv district court Tuesday sentenced former Israeli President Moshe Katsav to seven years in prison on multiple charges of rape and sexual harassment.

The case involved three women — two in the president’s office and one in the Tourism Ministry.

In late December, the three-judge panel found Katsav guilty of two charges of rape, two charges of forceful sexual harassment and one charge of sexual harassment.

Katsav had agreed in 2007 to plead guilty to lesser charges and pay a fine to avoid jail time, but he pulled out of the deal when it came time to enter his plea.

Israeli president to avoid jail for sex crimes after plea bargain

do you see the light?

Israel is not a Jewish state, and not because they are or not Jews but because they don’t belong to the environment and since the circumstances is not like the new world, they don’t understand the heritage, culture, and the history of the land

JEFFREY HELLER IN JERUSALEM

ISRAEL’S president, Moshe Katsav, yesterday pleaded guilty to committing sexual crimes against women employees, signing a plea bargain that will keep him out of jail, the country’s attorney-general said.

Under the deal, the attorney-general, Menachem Mazuz, retreated from his stated intention to charge Katsav with rape. But he said the president would resign and that “shame will accompany him forever”.
