Court: Katsav will remain out of jail until appeal decision

The Supreme Court on Wednesday accepted former president Moshe Katsav's request to delay the start of his prison sentence until a decision on his appeal is made.
Katsav was sentenced to seven years in prison for two counts of rape and other felonies.
In his ruling, Supreme Court Judge Yoram Danziger wrote that his chances for appeal warrant his remaining free until the appeal process is complete.
