FC Barcelona Defender Javier Mscherano was sentenced to 1 year in prison for Tax Evasion in spanish court.

Mascherano agreed to a 1 year sentence and 815,000 Euro Fine. Javier made a public statement on his instagram explaining how his former finance team are the culprits and how he terminated them as soon as he discovered that their were problems with the way they were handling his financial affairs.

He later on explained how the new firm he hired has done nothing but try to rectify the problems.

Despite the sentence Javier will not be stepping a foot in prison as the law in Spain states that offenders of this nature are not required to serve their sentence for their first offense and instead comply with just the fine.
