The Supreme Court rejected an appeal by former Bat Yam mayor Shlomo Lahiani on Tuesday, keeping in place his sentence of eight months in prison.

Other elements of his sentence - probation and a fine - also remain in place, the Justice Ministry said.Lahiani was arraigned on charges of breach of public trust and fraud in October 2013.

The Tel Aviv Magistrate’s Court originally gave him a light sentence of no jail time and six months of community service, but in April his punishment was stepped up to eight months in prison following a state appeal.
