The military prosecution said Tuesday it was working on a plea bargain for Brigadier General Ofek Buchris, who was charged with 17 counts of sexual misconduct.
Brig. Gen. Ofek Buchris resigned from the Israel Defense Forces on Sunday following his indictment a week and a half ago on sexual charges including three counts of rape, allegedly committed against a female soldier.
The IDF legal division on Thursday filed an indictment against Brig. Gen. Ofer Buchris for three counts of rape and 13 counts of other sex crimes between July 2012 and January 2013, bringing the saga to a decisive point which has captivated the country for 5 months.
