Plea Bargain in Giv'ati Hazing Case


It was announced, Tuesday morning, that a plea-bargain has been reached with one of the defendants in an incident of hazing in the Israel Defense Forces' Giv'ati Brigade. Under the agreement, the defendant will confess to the charges and receive a relatively light punishment but be reduced to the rank of private first class.

All the defendants have been charged with aggravated abuse and inappropriate behavior. Without a plea bargain, they face a long prison term and a full criminal record.
