Ronaldo Pleads Guilty : Portuguese Star Accepts €18.8m Deal Over Tax Evasion

Portuguese Soccer Star Cristiano Ronaldo has agreed to settle the case by paying an 18.8 million Euro fine and accepting a suspended Jail Sentence.

Earlier, Portuguese star arrived in Court in Madrid to face accusations of Tax Fraud, where he pleaded guilty after striking a deal last year with authorities.

Under Spanish Law, a first offender can serve anything less than a two-year sentence under probation, so according to the deal, Ronaldo will not be required to serve his time in Jail.
