Former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has been found guilty of fraud and breach of trust in a retrial on corruption charges.

The ruling came down Monday in Jerusalem District Court.

Olmert was acquitted in 2012 of charges he accepted cash-stuffed envelopes from an American supporter. But Olmert's longtime confidant later became a state's witness, offering tape recordings of conversations with Olmert about receiving the cash, leading to a retrial.
