Analysis: How many years in prison will Olmert really serve?

Jail is looking more and more like a foregone conclusion for former prime minister Ehud Olmert.

In May 2014, he was sentenced to six years of prison on his bribery conviction in the Holyland trial relating to taking bribes for smoothing over violations of zoning and real estate laws.

If he cannot knock down both convictions on appeal, which seems a long-shot at this point, he now faces an additional eight months on his conviction for fraud in the Talansky retrial for illegally accepting, using and concealing over $150,000 from American businessman Morris Talansky.
