Baldini had been set to give evidence in the 2006 Italian match-fixing case in June 2008 when Moggi approached him and said, ”watch your step or you’ll have problems.”
The prosecutors were seeking an eight-month sentence.
Moggi was also sentenced to five years and four months in prison by a Naples court on Tuesday for his role in the match-fixing scandal.
At the heart of the scandal were allegations that Moggi created a network of contacts with federation officials to influence refereeing assignments and arrange for key players in other teams to be booked ahead of matches with Juventus.
