A Paris court on Monday convicted Nicolas Sarkozy of corruption and influence peddling and sentenced him to one year in prison and two suspended years. The former president of France still faces a separate trial this month over accusations he illegally financed his 2012 presidential campaign. The judge said Sarkozy, who led the country from 2007 to 2012, can request to serve his sentence at home with an electronic bracelet.
