DOLCE & GABBANA SENTENCED TO JAIL

Source: dolcegabbana.com
Dolce & Gabbana were sentenced to jail in the tax evasion case that dates back to 2004.

The Italian judge sentenced the designers to eight months in prison. However, the sentence was suspended because under Italian law, sentences of less than three years are typically served via house arrest or community service. 

In addition, as noted by the Wall Street Journal, the designers have the right to appeal the verdict twice, and Italian courts often take years to reach a final decision.

The public prosecutor of this case, Laura Pedio, stated that it was a "sophisticated tax fraud" and originally asked for a two-year jail term for the duo. If the conviction is upheld, the pair would also need to pay a fine to Italy's tax agency for € 500,000.
