Argentina: Former minister sentenced to four years in prison

(AP) — A former Argentine economy minister has been sentenced to four years in prison for corruption.
Felisa Miceli was forced to quit in 2007 when a bag of money holding $32,000 was found in her office toilet.
The unanimous ruling said Miceli was guilty of the "aggravated cover up" on an illegal financial maneuver and obstruction of justice for getting rid of a police report on the money bag.
A local court also ruled today that Miceli will be barred from holding any public office position for eight years.
Miceli served under President Cristina Fernandez's husband and predecessor, former President Nestor Kirchner.
