    Default Raul Mondesi going to jail for embezzlement of $6.3 million

    The Bergen Record has the story:

    "Former Los Angeles Dodgers star Raul Mondesi, who also played for the Yankees, has been sentenced to eight years in prison after being convicted of embezzlement during his term as mayor of his hometown in the Dominican Republic.

    The district court of San Cristobal, a town west of the capital Santo Domingo, also ordered this week that Mondesi pay a $1.3 million fine.

    The Attorney General's office charged Mondesi of embezzling $6.3 million while he was mayor of San Cristobal from 2010-16, according to the court."

    Should have stuck with beisbol - It takes a while to learn how to embezzle and take bribes and kickbacks without being caught. I think you can major in Corruption with a minor in Offshore Banking at the Universities here. He must have just had an associates degree

    Read an article this morning that said he wasn't a popular person, even as a baseball player he was disliked.

    If you are an inveterate gambler (he is/was a big time gallero) you will need a way to supplement your vice I suppose. Maybe they allow cockfights in the local prisons?

    There's an unintended but very funny pun in this post.
