Report: Plea Bargain in Soldier-Abuse Case

A plea bargain was presented, Monday, in the Yafo (Jaffa) military court in the case of soldiers from the Kefir anti-terror brigade who were charged with causing severe bodily harm to another soldier, according to Kol Yisrael government radio.

Under the arrangement, the soldiers will serve 60 days behind bars without the case going on their criminal record. It was recommended that the defendants be reduced to the rank of corporal but some asked to be reduced to the rank of private, claiming that only pencil pushers are released at the rank of corporal.
