Former Ma'ariv publisher Ofer Nimrodi was sentenced Wednesday to 25 months in prison after being convicted two weeks ago under a plea bargain.

Of that time, Nimrodi has already served 15 months. The extra ten are from exercising probation.

Nimrodi was convicted at the Tel Aviv District Court of two counts of obstruction of justice, one count of fraud, breach of trust in a corporation, harassing a witness and falsifying corporate documents.

The 15 months Nimrodi was in lock-up during his trial will be considered time already served, meaning he will effectively have to serve 10 months. If he also gets a third off for good behavior, he will end up serving another 40 days.

The prosecution had asked Judge Bracha Ofir-Tom to sentence Nimrodi to three years imprisonment, while the defense had asked for a prison term of no more than 15 months. Nimrodi will also be fined NIS 349,000.
