Olmert will go to prison, but only for 18 months

The supreme court dropped the bigger charge against him, but kept the smaller one:
The Supreme Court on Tuesday partially accepted Ehud Olmert’s appeal of his spring 2014 bribery convictions, but he will still become the first prime minister in history to go behind bars.

The court knocked out one of Olmert's convictions for taking an NIS 500,000 bribe, but convicted him of taking a NIS 60,000 bribe. He will serve only 18 months, rather than the six years he was originally sentenced to. Olmert was set to begin serving his sentence on February 15, 2016.
I suppose this'll have to do. He deserved far more than what he's got so far, and it's regrettable it couldn't have been a few more years. However, there is one more charge he may be facing that'll hopefully hand him more time in jail.

Olmert was asking for this, after all the harm he caused Israel during his own tenure as prime minister with his dhimmitude. Now, though it be a light sentence so far, he's paying a price.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
