The Beer Sheva District Court found former Magava officer Uriel Avitan guilty of rape with a threat of a weapon.
Avitan raped a 20-year-old girl from Eilat . He met her at a party with mutual friends. He tricked her into his apartment in Eilat where he raped her at gunpoint.
The girl told her parents and friends about the rape immediately. She filed a police report a year and a half later.
Avitan claimed that it was about “consensual sex”. During the trial, it turned out that the victim, a few hours after the rape, wrote to Avitan on Instagram: “I can’t believe you did this to me.” Avitan wrote in response that he was sorry and wanted to rectify the situation. It was this confession that became the main evidence against him during the trial.
