Hosni Mubarak, the ousted former president of Egypt, has been sentenced to three years in prison for charges of embezzlement, various news sources are reporting.
His two sons, Alaa and Gamal, were also convicted and given four-year terms, according to a BBC report.
Prosecutors had accused the ex-president of stealing $17.6m from the public fund.
The 86-year-old leader has also been accused of abusing power and conspiring in the killing of protesters during the 2011 uprising that ultimately resulted in his ouster.
"The court orders Mohamed Hosni Mubarak to be sent to jail for three years," Reuters quoted the judge as saying as Mubarak looked on from a cage, where he was sentenced for the same charges.
The court also fined Mubarak and his sons about $3,246,000 and ordered them to repay about 19 million dollars of funds which they had misused.
This comes as Mubarak's former intelligence chief, Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, is poised to be elected as the Egypt's president next week.
Although the verdict may please many Egyptian who had to withstand three decades of autocracy under Mubarak, there are still some businessmen loyal to him who play influential parts in the Egyptian politics, according to analysts.
Mubarak has been kept under house arrest at a military hospital since August awaiting retrial on his involvement in the killing of protesters during the 2011 uprising, that ultimately put an end to his power.
It has, however, not been clear whether the three years Mubarak and his sons have already spent in prison will be counted towards the sentence.
