Former French President Nicolas Sarkozy has been sentenced to a year in prison for illegally funding his unsuccessful 2012 re-election campaign.
The 66-year-old was found guilty in a Paris court of spending tens of millions of euros more on his campaign than was permitted under the law.
He will not be jailed, however, and can serve his sentence at home with an electronic bracelet, the court ruled.
Mr Sarkozy denies any wrongdoing and is expected to appeal against the ruling.
It is his second one-year prison term. In March, he became the first former president of France to receive a custodial sentence - for corruption and influence peddling - but remains free pending an appeal of that sentence.
