Lionel Messi gets 21months in Jail

Lionel was found guilty of three counts of tax fraud, a statement from the court said on Wednesday and was sentenced to 21months in jail by a court in Barcelona.

However, under Spanish law a prison sentence under two years can be served under probation, meaning Messi and his father are unlikely to go to jail.

The court ordered Messi to pay a fine of around 2 million euros ($2.21 million) and his father to pay 1.5 million euros for the crimes. ($1 = 0.9034 euros)
