Katzav was condemned to seven years of jail. The conviction and even the charges themselves were a matter of hysterical farse in that no evidence was presented against him. It was a case of his word against hers - and the judges chose to believe her, convicting the man who was a former Knesset Member, Transportation Minister and President on two counts of rape. He was stereotyped as the veritable prototype of all those swarthy rapists that terrorize Tel Aviv females. He will pay for it.
