Olmert jail sentence elicits bout of schadenfreude from pro-settler group

Ehud Olmert’s anticipated incarceration following his conviction on graft and other corruption-related charges is a just fate for one of the planners and champions of the removal of Jewish settlers from the Gaza Strip, a right-wing organization said on Monday.

Olmert on Monday was sentenced by the Jerusalem District Court to eight months of jail time on his conviction for fraud under aggravated circumstances in the Talansky retrial. The court also fined Olmert NIS 100,000. 

Olmert lawyers appealed the sentence and the court agreed to their request to hold off the sentence for 45 days for time to appeal.
