Ex-Israeli President Jailed for Rape (AlJazeera)

Moshe Katsav, Israel’s former president, has been sentenced to seven years in jail for rape, Israeli media reported. The judges also handed the former leader a two-year suspended sentence and ordered him to pay a fine of 100,000 shekels ($28,000). The sentence was approved by two of the three judges at Tel Aviv district court on Tuesday, which was presided over by Judge George Kara. Katsav was convicted in December of rape, sexual harassment, indecent acts and obstruction of justice following a four-year scandal that shocked the Jewish state.
