Moggi sentenced to over five years

AP

Naples, Italy — Former Juventus executive Luciano Moggi was sentenced to five years and four months in prison by a Naples court Tuesday for his role in the 2006 Italian match-fixing scandal.

Prosecutors were seeking a sentence of five years and eight months for Moggi on charges of criminal association aimed at committing sports fraud.

"I don't want to make any comment, I'm not talking," Moggi said as he exited the courtroom, according to the ANSA news agency.

One of Moggi's lawyers, Maurilio Prioreschi, said they were not expecting such a harsh sentence.

"We will definitely appeal and we think with the appeal we can restore what we believe is the truth," Prioreschi told Italy's Sky TV.
