FILE - In this March 29, 2012 file photo, L'Oreal heiress Liliane Bettencourt leaves the L'Oreal-UNESCO prize for the women in science, in Paris. Former French President Nicolas Sarkozy went before a judge on Thursday, Nov.22, 2012 to respond to suspicions he illegally accepted donations from France's richest woman to fund his 2007 election campaign. The judge in Bordeaux could decide whether the 57-year-old conservative, a polarizing figure who often faced criticism for cozy ties to the rich, will be charged with taking advantage of the 90-year-old L'Oreal heiress, Liliane Bettencourt. Sarkozy has consistently denied all allegations. (AP Photo/Thibault Camus, File)
