Former prime minister Ehud Olmert on Monday looks to stand in a place that no prime minister has ever stood – pleading for his freedom from prison before Tel Aviv District Judge David Rozen.

Following his conviction on serious bribery charges in the Holyland trial on March 23, Olmert is expected to pull out all the stops to try to convince the judge to have mercy on him regarding punishment, even as Rozen took an extremely harsh line in his conviction.

In contrast, the state is expected to seek either three, five or six years in prison, according to differing news reports.
