Former Czech Republic defender Tomáš Řepka has been convicted of fraud and sentenced to 15 months in jail.
The Prague 6 district court ruled that the 45-year-old Řepka sold a luxury car to a woman even though he didn’t own it. The former West Ham and Fiorentina player had been renting the car at the time.
In a deal Řepka signed, he promised to return the money if the ownership was not transferred to the woman, but he didn’t do that.
Řepka is appealing the court decision, the latest legal problem for the former player who received a six-month sentence last year for advertising sexual services on the Internet in the name of his ex-wife. That was later changed to community service. He also twice got suspended sentences for drunk driving.
