A judge has set aside the prosecutions petition for leniency in the tax evasion case of Dolce & Gabanna’s former business Gado.
The judges sentence clears up previous misconceptions regarding the prosecutor’s petition for no jail time for the duo.
Instead the judge sentence both men to 18-months in prison and a $500K euro fine each.
The pair will appeal next to Italy’s Supreme Court of Cassation, as attorney Armando Simbari told CNN.
Both men rank near #735 on the Forbes list of billionaires.
Previously, the factual error came from the Daily Mail regarding the prosecutor asking for leniency. Take The Gate apologizes for not taking the Italian tax court seriously and jumping to conclusions.
