Israel and France, sister countries

Israel: the former president Katsav is in prison has been sentenced to prison for rape.
France: the former future presidential candidate Strauss-Kahn is being charged with attempted rape.

One main difference is that the Israeli justice was on the first case, but it is the US justice that is on the second case. I am having grave doubts about the French justice system's treatment of public figures.

  1. Wikipedia: "On 22 March 2011, Moshe Katsav was sentenced to seven years in prison and two years probation for rape, indecent acts, sexual harassment and obstruction of justice, becoming the first former Israeli head of state to be sentenced to prison. In addition, he was ordered to pay one of the women he raped a sum of 100,000 NIS and another a sum of 25,000 NIS.[44] Katsav's lawyer Tzion Amir told reporters later the same day that the sentence will be appealed to the Supreme Court.[45]"

    Do you mean that he's allowed to stay out of prison while waiting for the result of the appeal?
