State to Supreme Court: Give Olmert another 6 months in prison

The state on Sunday requested that the Supreme Court add an additional six months on to former prime minister Ehud Olmert’s prison sentence relating to the Jerusalem corruption trial.

In May, the Jerusalem District Court sentenced Olmert to eight months in prison following his conviction in the Talansky Affair retrial, one of three affairs he was accused of in the Jerusalem corruption trial.

The Talansky Affair consisted of Olmert illegally receiving, using and concealing at least $153,950 (out of an alleged $600,000) funds in envelopes from New York businessman Morris Talansky from 1993 and 2002, with the case itself dating back to 2008.
