Messi and his father were given 21-month sentences for three counts of tax fraud but did not go to prison, while Mascherano was given a one-year sentence for tax evasion. The Spanish Supreme Court found Lionel Messi guilty of similar crimes a year ago. In Spain, sentences of under two-years are often suspended if the convicted person has no previous criminal record.
