Ex-Guatemala official Hector Trujillo banned for life by FIFA

ZURICH -- FIFA ethics judges have imposed a life ban from football on a Guatemalan official who took bribes linked to marketing deals for World Cup qualifying games.

Hector Trujillo was the first defendant sentenced last October in a sprawling American investigation of football corruption. He received an eight-month prison term after admitting wire fraud and conspiracy charges.

FIFA says its ethics committee has fined Trujillo $200,000 but it is unclear how the sport's ruling body can enforce payment.

In a Brooklyn federal court, Trujillo was said to have received bribes totaling $175,000 as the Guatemalan football federation's CEO-like general secretary. He was ordered to pay $415,000 in restitution.

Trujillo, a former constitutional court judge, was arrested in Florida during a December 2015 cruise holiday, just days after the U.S. Justice Department unsealed an indictment against him.
