PARIS (AP) – A Paris court on Monday saw French previous President Nicolas Sarkozy as liable of debasement and impact hawking and condemned him to one year in jail and a two-year suspended sentence.
The 66-year-old lawmaker, who was president from 2007 to 2012, was indicted for having attempted to illicitly acquire data from a senior judge in 2014 about a lawful activity in which he was included.
The court said Sarkozy will be qualified for solicitation to be kept at home with an electronic arm band.

What’s more, as a previous legal counselor, he was “entirely educated” about submitting an unlawful activity, the court said.
Sarkozy’s two co-litigants were likewise seen as liable and given a similar sentence as Sarkozy.
Sarkozy will confront another preliminary in the not so distant future alongside 13 others on charges of unlawful financing of his 2012 official mission.
