Buchris close to plea bargain on sexual charges

Former Brig.-Gen. (res.) Ofek Buchris and the IDF Prosecution are close to a plea deal in which he would admit to consensual sex, which was prohibited by virtue of it being with a junior female soldier under his command, while three counts of rape and any jail time would be dropped, The Jerusalem Post learned late Tuesday.

Buchris, a famed general who was potentially on track to become chief of staff, was indicted in July for three counts of rape and 13 counts of other sex crimes between July 2012 and January 2013, against a junior soldier and a junior officer under his command.
