The son of the former prime minister has gotten another jail sentence
, although it's two months reduced from his first sentencing:
(IsraelNN.com) Ariel Sharon's son and Disengagement-facilitator Omri Sharon will enter prison next month for a seven-month term for election crimes.
Omri Sharon, the older son of comatose former Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, has had his nine-month sentence reduced but not revoked. He was convicted a year ago of having violated campaign finance laws by receiving illegal contributions and lying under oath. Much evidence, including documents, affidavits, recorded testimony and admissions, was amassed showing that Omri activated fictitious associations to help his father beat Ehud Olmert in the Likud primaries of 1999.
His appeal for clemency was partially granted today, and he will serve only seven months instead of nine.
That's disappointing. He should serve the whole sentence he got in the first place. Come to think of it, he should be serving much more jail time then that too.
