Prosecution Seeks Community Service for Olmert

State prosecutors have asked that former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert be sentenced to community service, probation and a fine. Olmert is being sentenced for breach of trust.

Prosecutors did not ask that Olmert be labeled as having committed an offense bringing disgrace. Olmert gave up his right to benefits as a former PM on Tuesday in hopes that prosecutors would not seek a “disgrace” charge.
