Ehud Olmert has the dubious honor of becoming Israel's first prime minister to go to prison.


Olmert, who was convicted on corruption charges and still has some appeals pending, began a sentence that will last at least 18 months on Monday.

In a return of our "Only in Israel" segment, legal affairs correspondent Yonah Jeremy Bob gives us the ins and outs of the case, including a lowdown of the special wing of the prison Olmert will stay in.
