By Mike Schwartz, CNN

An Israeli judge has convicted Sara Netanyahu of misusing public funds to pay for meals at the Prime Minister’s residence.

The wife of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will pay a fine of 55,000 shekels ($15,200) as part of a plea agreement, made public on Wednesday, which judge Avital Chen, of the Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court, accepted Sunday morning.

After a more serious charge of fraud was dropped, Sara Netanyahu admitted to the lesser offense of exploiting the mistake of another person.
