A Paris court on Monday found French former President Nicolas Sarkozy guilty of corruption and influence-peddling and sentenced him to one year in prison and a two-year suspended sentence. The 66-year-old politician, who was president from 2007 to 2012, was convicted for having tried to illegally obtain information from a senior magistrate in 2014 about a legal action in which he was involved.

The court said Sarkozy will be entitled to request to be detained at home with an electronic bracelet.

The court said the facts were "particularly serious" given that they were committed by a former president who used his status to help a magistrate who had served his personal interest. In addition, as a former lawyer, he was "perfectly informed" about committing an illegal action, the court said.
Sarkozy's two co-defendants were also found guilty and given the same sentence as Sarkozy.

Trump Says Prison Time for Ex-President of France Sets Horrible Precedent

PALM BEACH (The Borowitz Report)
—Shortly after the sentencing of Nicolas Sarkozy, Donald J. Trump issued a statement claiming that prison time for the ex-President of France sets a “horrible precedent.”
In the statement, Trump called the corruption case against Sarkozy a “rigged hoax” and claimed that the former French leader was being treated “very unfairly.” :D:D:D
Best president ever. Since him France haijakuwa na president. Wenye wamekuwa after him ni bure sana.
How is he the best president? He contributed to the collapse of Libya. A house arrest is lenient coz he'll just be on Netflix bingeing on the latest series.

He deserves a real jail term like the one the former Brazilian president got.
