Madrid Oct 6 (IANS) A Spanish court on Friday handed Portuguese defender Ricardo Carvalho a seven-month prison sentence for two tax crimes in 2011 and in relation to his image rights in 2012 after a deal was struck with prosecutors.



The court also fined the former Real Madrid player who acknowledged the charges against him 142 822 euros ($167 216) although the state attorney had asked for a one-year jail sentence and a 300 000 euro ($351 691.5) fine reports Efe.

The court said that the player had paid back the evaded taxes amounting to 545 981 euro ($640 146.34) and confessed before his trail.

In Spain jail sentences under two years tend to be served under probation.
