FILE - This is a Thursday, Feb. 23, 2012 file photo of  French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe speaks to the media during a press conference after the Somalia Conference in London.   Former President Nicolas Sarkozy is the latest in a recent string of former French leaders in the legal crosshairs.Alain Juppe, Jacques Chirac's first prime minister, was convicted in 2004 over the same party funding scheme, when he served as finance director at Paris City Hall under Chirac. Juppe received a suspended prison sentence and one-year ban from elected office from an appeals court _ far less a penalty than the original, and potentially career-ending, 10-year ban handed down by a lower court. Juppe proved that French politicians can bounce back from scandal: today mayor of Bordeaux, he served as both foreign minister and defense minister under Sarkozy and remains a conservative party heavyweight.(AP Photo/Sang Tan, File)
