Former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert was found guilty Monday of fraud and breach of trust in a retrial on corruption charges, three years after being acquitted.
Olmert's lawyers said they would likely appeal the ruling by the Jerusalem District Court. He is scheduled to be sentenced at a later court hearing.
Olmert was acquitted in 2012 of a series of charges that included accepting cash-stuffed envelopes from U.S. businessman Morris Talansky when Olmert was mayor of Jerusalem and a Cabinet minister before he became prime minister. The verdict was seen as a major victory for Olmert.
But Olmert's former office manager and confidant, Shula Zaken, later became a prosecution witness, offering recordings of conversations with Olmert about receiving cash. That led to a retrial.
A panel of judges at the Jerusalem District Court found that Olmert had used the money for personal reasons without reporting it.
