Uli Hoeness sentenced to three years and six months in jail for tax evasion
Bayern Munich’s president Uli Hoeness has been sentenced to three years and six months in jail for tax evasion, a German court has ruled today.
Uli Hoeness admitted defrauding German tax authorities of millions of euros.
The former World Cup-winning German international footballer had kept the funds in a secret Swiss bank account.
Uli Hoeness’ lawyer had argued he should escape punishment because he gave himself up. But judges ruled his confession fell short of full disclosure.
