The Supreme Court on Thursday rejected the appeal of Erez Efrati, the former bodyguard of then-chief of General Staff Gabi Ashkenazi, who was sentenced to eight years in prison for attempting to sexually assault a 22-year-old girl.

Army Radio quoted Judge Edmund Levy as saying, "A dangerous and cruel aspect of Efrati's personality was revealed when he attacked the victim."
