Former HK Leader Sentenced to 20 Months

Former Hong Kong leader Donald Tsang has been sentenced to 20 months in prison for misconduct.
Tsang led Hong Kong from 2005 to 2012 and is the most senior official in the territory ever to stand trial for corruption, BBC reported. He was found guilty last week of misconduct in public office, in a case related to a luxury flat in China.
In sentencing, Judge Andrew Chan said, “Never in my judicial career have I seen a man fall from so high.”
The judge said he took Tsang’s reputation and long public service into account in sentencing, taking 10 months off what would have been a 30-month sentence. The maximum penalty could have been seven years.
