Former French President Sarkozy, convicted of illegal campaign finance, receives a 1-year sentence

In March, he was sentenced to three years in prison, of which two were suspended, after he was found guilty of corruption and influence peddling. The charges centered on whether he was behind a deal with a magistrate to illegally receive information about an investigation linked to him, using false names and unofficial phone lines. Sarkozy appealed the sentence imposed on him in March, delaying its entry into force.
