Ronaldo guilty of tax evasion, fined $ 28 million

Portuguese soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo fined about 19 million euros ($ 28.7 million) for tax evasion on Tuesday but will be sentenced to a 23-month jail term after the deal's consent.

Ronaldo, hand in hand with Georgian capitalist Georgina Rodriguez, came out of court room and signed autographs before going to Black Won.

33-year-old Juventus Forward, who played for Real Madrid from 2009-18, paid 18.8 million euros fine and agreed to settle the case after accepting the jail sentence of two years.

Under Spanish law, the first criminal can serve less than two years of sentence under probation and Ronaldo does not need to go to jail.

The appearance of his court lasted nearly 15 minutes, because the five year old World Footballer needed to sign on a previously settled contract.

Earlier, Ronaldo's former Real Madrid team's teammate Zabi Alonso went to face his tax evasion case with a deep hand in his hand pocket.

"Yes, all good," was his only response to reporters' questions.

On Monday, Rocaldo had to enter the courtroom by the front door after requesting to take safety measures to reject the spotlight.

In 2017, Ronaldo rejected the accusation that he used a professionally known business structure to hide income generated by his image rights in Spain between 2011 and 2014.

After reaching this deal, he paid a penalty of 5.7 million euros in July 2018, plus an interest of about 1 million euros, the prosecutor said last week in the office.
