...is a bigger travesty of justice than we originally thought:
A point which is rarely mentioned in the coverage of the "rape by deception" case—either by Israeli or foreign media—is that the case started out as a regular rape case. The woman claimed she was forcibly raped by Kashour. Once on the stand, however, the defense demolished her story and she admitted she lied and that they had consensual sex. She admitted that after learning Kashour lied to her, she felt humiliated and went to the police. It was at that point the prosecution came up with the plea bargain. A normal court would have just acquitted Kashour, but this court decided to convict.
And there's more.
