Jeffrey Webb's former CONCACAF aide Costas Takkas sentenced to prison

Costas Takkas leaves the courthouse after his sentencing on Tuesday.

A former aide to the president of CONCACAF was sentenced in New York on Tuesday to 15 months in prison, with credit for 10 months already served in Switzerland.

Costas Takkas worked at CONCACAF, the confederation which oversees football in North, Central America and the Caribbean.

The case is part of a sprawling prosecution that triggered turmoil at world governing body FIFA.

Takkas pleaded guilty to money laundering conspiracy in May, more than a year after he was extradited to the United States from Switzerland, where he had spent 10 months in prison.

He was among seven football officials arrested in May 2015 at a Zurich hotel two days before the FIFA presidential election.

The British citizen is the former secretary general of the Cayman Islands Football Association.

He was accused of demanding and accepting bribes of millions of dollars for then-CONCACAF president Jeffrey Webb linked to the sale of marketing rights for World Cup qualifiers. Webb pleaded guilty to racketeering charges and is awaiting sentencing.
