Efrati admits attempted rape, claims alcohol poisoning

A former bodyguard to IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi on Sunday morning confessed for the first time to the attempted rape of a young woman at the Tel Aviv port, claiming to have been in a state of pathological alcohol poisoning inducing delusions and leading to his criminal actions.
Erez Efrati's trial opened Sunday in the Tel Aviv Magistrate’s Court, where he admitted to all counts: attempted aggravated rape, attempted sodomy, aggravated assault, assault with intent to commit a crime and intimidation.
His lawyers submitted expert opinions to the effect that he had drunk fake alcoholic drinks that had caused his loss of control.
