Lionel Messi handed jail term in Spain for tax fraud

Quote:
Argentina and Barcelona footballer Lionel Messi has been sentenced to 21 months in prison for tax fraud, Spanish media say.
His father, Jorge Messi, was also given a jail term for defrauding Spain of €4.1m (£3.5m; $4.5m) between 2007 and 2009.
They also face millions of euros in fines for using tax havens in Belize and Uruguay used to conceal earnings from image rights.
However, they are likely to avoid jail.
Under the Spanish system, prison terms under two years can be served under probation.
The footballer and his father were found guilty of three counts of tax fraud in Wednesday's ruling by the court in Barcelona.
During the trial, Lionel Messi claimed he "knew nothing" about the management of his financial affairs, saying he was "playing football".

so what do you think? should he serve jail?
21 month... how fitting... 24 and he wouldn't have escaped prison.

Messi of all people committing tax fraud? lol I don't think he would avoid paying his taxes intentionally; but then again, he's a grown man now, you'd think he would know not to be careless about this stuff.

Re: Lionel Messi handed jail term in Spain for tax fraud

As long as you have a good handle on your sentencing (big if) than sentences of under 2 years being probationary is a great idea when most Western Countries have heavily overpopulated and under resourced prisons.
