Football Star #Ronaldinho gets released from #prison in Paraguay


Football star and all time legend Ronaldinho is said to have been finally released from prison after he was sentenced in Paraguay. He was said to have been placed on house arrest after spending a jail term of one month in the Country. After he was caught in an unpleasant situation of fraud while he and his brother Roberto Assist were using false passports to enter the Country.

They were subsequently charged and put in jail, where they have spent the last 32 days.

However, in a latest ruling, judge Gustavo Amarilla has decided that the duo can live in a hotel in Asuncion while they await trial on their charges.

Ronaldinho and his brother had travelled to Paraguay to take part in a number of promotional events, however, they were found to have produced false documents.

They were subsequently arrested and put inside the maximum security Agrupacion Especializada prison.

In court, Ronaldinho’s lawyers argued that he had been given the Paraguayan passport as a gift from a local sponsor, and that wasn’t aware he was doing anything wrong by using it.

The Ballon d’Or winner, however, still managed to catch the eye of the world while in prison, with videos capturing him involved in some football.
