Former President Moshe Katsav was found guilty of two counts of rape, a forceful indecent act, and sexual harassment Thursday morning, with the leading judge calling him a liar. He was found guilty of every single charge in the indictment. Katzav declined a plea bargain of lesser charges, believing he would clear his name completely.

NB: The Hebrew word Kalon "קלון" (rhymes with Cologne) means moral turpitude.
Kadima MK and party chairman Tzachi HaNegbi was convicted of perjury, yet tried to convince the court that perjury shouldn't be considered "moral turpitude," so he could remain a member of Knesset. He was thrown out of the Knesset.
I wonder if Katzav will go the same route...and appeal to the court to prevent him from being tarred with "moral turpitude."
