Omri Sharon tells court his sentence is unfair

Omri Sharon told Tel Aviv District Court on Thursday the nine-month prison sentence he received for concealing illegal contributions to his father's primary campaign was overly severe and created "extreme and unjustified discrimination" compared to punishments handed down to others for similar crimes. On Feb. 13, 2006, Tel Aviv Magistrate's Court judge Edna Bankenstein sentenced Sharon to nine months in jail, nine months suspended and a NIS 300,000 fine after convicting him of making false entries into the documents of a corporate body, making a false oath and violating the Political Parties Law.
