Nicolas Sarkozy, former French president, guilty of illegal campaign financing

Earlier this year, Sarkozy was handed out a three-year prison sentence, two of whom were suspended for corruption and influence peddling, making him the first French head of state to be sentenced to prison since 1945.

The judge said Sarkozy did not need to spend time in jail. You could serve your sentence by wearing an electronic bracelet at home.

This is a story in development … more to come.
