Former Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness starts serving prison sentence
MUNICH - Former Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness has started serving his prison sentence for tax evasion.
Hoeness was convicted in March of evading taxes on a private bank account in Switzerland and sentenced to 3 1/2 years in prison.
His lawyers and Bavarian justice officials say he reported to the Landsberg am Lech prison in southern Germany on Monday.
Hoeness admitted evading taxes on at least €28.5 million ($38.78 million). The former Germany star and longtime Bayern manager declined to appeal and stepped down as president of Germany's biggest club.
