The Pal who was convicted of "Rape by Deception" for having consensual sex with a Jewish woman was in jail for 2 months, then under house arrest during the many months before his trial. Katsav is accused of two counts of "real" rape ("forcible indecent assault ") and two other sex crimes against other women. Is he presently in jail or at least under house arrest? Or is it only Pals that are jailed while awaiting trial in Israel?
