A Paris court has convicted French former President Nicolas Sarkozy of corruption and sentenced him to 1 year in prison, trtajans.eu reports citing AFP. 

Nicolas Sarkozy, who was president from 2007 to 2012, firmly denied all the allegations against him during the 10-day trial that took place at the end of last year.
