Sarah Netanyahu, wife of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, has agreed to a plea deal in connection with allegations that she misused about $100,000 in government money.
She will pay around $15,000 in fines to quietly close the case, which accused her of running up large tabs at luxury restaurants for friends and family while the official prime minister’s residence employed a full-time chef.
Mrs. Netanyahu was indicted on fraud and breach-of-trust charges last year. Under the plea deal, she admitted guilt on lesser charges.
Bibi’s own corruption cases are independent of hs wife’s.
