JERUSALEM -- Former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert was found guilty on Monday on charges of corruption in the Jerusalem District Court.
Olmert was acquitted in what came to be known as the "Talansky Affair" in July 2012. He was suspected of illegally receiving large sums of money in envelopes during fundraisers from US businessman Moris Talansky and charged with fraud and tax evasion.
