A court handed down a two-year prison sentence for bribery to former Salvadoran President Elias Antonio Saca, the attorney general’s office said on Thursday.
Saca, 54, who is already serving a 10-year prison sentence for misuse of public funds and money laundering, was found guilty of having offered $10,000 to a court employee to obtain information about a case against him, the attorney general’s office said.
He pleaded guilty in both cases as he sought to reduce his prison term. A judge has yet to decide whether the two years will be added to his existing sentence.
