    Crooked French Man

    May be we should do similar...



    https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/mar/01/former-french-president-nicolas-sarkozy-sentenced-to-three-years-for-corruption


    A court has found Nicolas Sarkozy guilty of corruption and influence peddling and sentenced the former French president to three years in prison with two of them suspended.

    France’s president from 2007 to 2012 was accused of forging a “corruption pact” with his lawyer and a senior magistrate. Judges said there was “serious evidence” of collaboration between the three men to break the law.



    The court had heard how Sarkozy instructed his lawyer, Thierry Herzog, to offer the magistrate a cushy job on the Côte d’Azur in return for information on a separate investigation centred on the rightwing politician.

    It is unlikely the former president will spend a day in jail. The one-year prison sentence can be served with certain conditions, including the wearing of an electronic bracelet, or limited home confinement.

    Sarkozy is expected to appeal against the conviction.

      FFS, it will be home arrest (if he asks for it, which he will obviously)

        Well unlike British politicians e.g. Jeffery Archer, Jonathan Aitken they can't let them go in jail as they will come out after finding that lots of their fellow inmates are in due to racism and/or class so will come out champing judiciary and prison reform.
