Barcelona’s Javier Mascherano Sentenced To 1 Year In Jail

Barcelona defender, Javier Mascherano has been sentenced to a year in prison after being found guilty of tax evasion.

The Argentinian defender had entered a plea of guilty last year on charges of tax evasion to the tune of €1.5 million.

Mascherano failed to pay income taxes between 2011-2012 and as a result will also be mandated to pay a fine of €815,000.

It is doubtful that Mascherano will serve a prison sentence after his lawyers filed that his jail sentence be changed to an option of a further fine.
