A Jerusalem district court sentenced former prime minister Ehud Olmert to eight months in prison on Monday, after convicting him of corruption in March, Israeli media reported.

Lawyers for Olmert, who served as premier from 2006 to 2009, immediately announced that they would appeal.

The 69-year-old already faces a six-year prison sentence handed down in a separate corruption case which is currently the subject of an appeal to the supreme court.
