Messi & His Father Caught Up In Tax Fraud Case; Could Serve Jail Time?!

There is no silver lining to this story, and Spain is not allowing wealth to uphold impunity. Lionel Messi, one of the top paid athletes in the world, FC Barcelona forward, will stand trial with his father, Jorge, for intentionally not paying taxes from endorsement earnings (defrauding Spain) from 2007-2009 amounting to about $5 million dollars. The judge in the case rejected requests from prosecutors to drop the charges on the star soccer/futbal player and his father, and they will have to stand trial with no date set yet. Lawyers from the tax authority are lobbying for a 22-month sentence for both Lionel and his father. Lionel and his father are denying any knowledge of wrongdoing and intentional fraud.

Unfortunately, *coincidence* (Derek) Jeter’s ceremonial hit occured at the same time as former Yankee Paul O’Neill plaque presentation, otherwise it would be obviously more tout. Jeter didn’t even hit it out of the infield (and made it on!) to notch up to 6th place on the All-Time Hits List (chart below) passing legendary (most valuable baseball card ever legendary) Pittsburgh Pirates’ HOF Honus Wagner!
