The Supreme Court rejected Monday an appeal filed by Col. Atef Zaher who was convicted of raping a female soldier under his command. Zaher was sentenced to six years in prison and demoted to the rank of private. In 2005, Zaher, 47, was charged with illegal sexual intercourse, indecent behavior, sexual harassment, and unbecoming behavior and sentenced to eight months in a military prison, a suspended 10-month sentence over a three-year period, and demoted to the rank of major. It was the first time a senior-ranking IDF officer was convicted in such a major case of sexual assault in the army.
