Messi Sentenced to 21 month Prison Sentence...BUT
Today the Spanish courts dropped the hammer on Lionel Messi and his father for tax fraud and sentenced them both to a 21 month jail sentence... BUT the two will spend a combined ZERO days in jail. Why is that you ask? Under Spanish law a tax prison sentence can be served under probation if it is under two years.
Many scumbags like Bernie Madoff are defiantly kicking themselves in the ass today. Had they only done their business in Spain they would've been fine. This is the dumbest rule in the World, but I LOVE it.
If I'm a loaded athlete who plays footie ball I'm trying all I can to get to play in La Liga. Messi only has to pay $2 million out of the $4.1 that he evaded paying taxes on.
$2 Million is nothing for a guy who made $81 million dollars alone last year.
End of the day though Leo is still a soft body for quitting Argentina.
