Matias Messi sentenced for illegally owning a gun

Matias Messi, brother of Barcelona star Lionel Messi, has been sentenced for illegally possessing a firearm.

Messi received a 2 ½-year prison sentence on Thursday, but will not go to jail.

La Capital Newspaper reports that he was instead ordered to perform community service. The decision was reached under a deal with investigating prosecutors.

The weapon was found late last year, inside a blood-stained boat, which Messi crashed in the Parana River.

The 35-year-old Messi was held under preventive arrest and later released, while he recovered from a fractured jaw and other injuries at a hospital in Argentina’s Santa Fe province.
