Cristiano Ronaldo Gets Two-Year Prison Sentence & $22 Million Fine for Tax Fraud

Published

on

CRISTIANO RONALDO has accepted a two-year prison sentence and a £16.9million fine after agreeing a deal over tax charges – but won’t serve any time behind bars.

The Juventus superstar had been seeking an arrangement after pleading guilty to four charges of evasion between 2011 and 2014, worth a total of £13m.

That amount has been reduced to £5m as part of the deal, but with costs and fines the figure Ronaldo has to cough up to settle the case is £16.9m.

Crucially, under Spanish law, he will not have to serve any time in prison because his sentence is not more than two years.

A settlement was thought to have been reached for a while but it hinged on the new government in Spain accepting the terms..

The latest fine covers fees from authorities, fines and commission but he can now put the issue behind him.
