JTA - January 31, 2007

Israel’s former justice minister, Haim Ramon, was found guilty of sexual molestation.

Tel Aviv Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday convicted Ramon, 56, for forcibly embracing and kissing a female soldier in July.

Ramon, who stepped down from Prime Minister Ehud Olmert’s Cabinet after the indictment was served, has said the kiss was consensual, and he is expected to appeal the verdict.
He could be jailed for up to three years.

The conviction was another blow to Olmert’s Kadima Party, which has been dogged by legal scandals.
