Former President of El Salvador, Elias Antonio Saca sentenced to two years in prison



Elias Antonio Saca, the former President of El Salvador has been sentenced to two years in prison after being convicted for bribery. 

The former President of the Central American country was serving a 10-year prison sentence for corruption before being handed two more years after being found guilty of offering $10,000 to a court employee to obtain information about a case against him. 

Reuters reported that the businessman who governed El Salvador from 2004 to 2009, pleaded guilty in both cases as he sought to reduce his prison term. Following his conviction, a judge will decide whether Saca will serve an extra two years or if the additional time will be considered as part of his existing ten-year sentence.
