Jerusalem psychologist accused of sex crimes named

Yuval Carmi, 66, is the Jerusalem-based psychologist accused of sexual assault by three of his patients, according to Hebrew media reports.

The first patient to complain about his conduct to police was a young woman who witnessed the 2015 murder of teenager Shira Banki at the Jerusalem Gay Pride Parade and sought counseling after the murder.

A court lifts a gag order on his identity as Carmi’s remand is extended by another week.

He is also suspected of drug offenses and has confessed to most of the charges against him, according to the Kan public broadcaster.
