Former Czech Republic defender Tomas Repka gets 2nd jail term in a month
Former Czech Republic defender Tomas Repka has been handed another nine-month jail sentence.
The latest verdict comes less than two weeks after he was convicted of fraud on Feb. 7 and sentenced to 15 months in prison.
On Tuesday, The Prague-West county court turned two previous suspended sentences for drunk driving into jail terms because of his convictions for other crimes since receiving the initial terms.
Earlier in February, the 45-year-old was convicted for selling a luxury car to a woman even though he did not own it, but was only renting the car at the time. In a deal Repka signed, he promised to return the money if the ownership was not transferred, something he did not do.
The former West Ham and Fiorentina player has appealed both verdicts.
Last year, Repka also received a six-month jail term for offering sexual services in the name of his former wife. That was later changed to community service.
