Lupoliansky Sentenced to Six Years

Tel Aviv District Court Judge David Rosen sentenced former Jerusalem Mayor Uri Lupoliansky to six years in jail Thursday, for accepting bribes in the Holyland scandal.

The defense said that jailing Lupoliansky could endanger his life, because he suffers from cancer. However, the judge accepted the opinion of the Israel Prisons Service doctors, according to which Lupoliansky is able to serve a jail sentence.
