Moggi sentenced to 4 months for Baldini threats

BY foxsports • November 11, 2011

Former Juventus executive Luciano Moggi has been given a four-month prison sentence for threatening Roma managing director Franco Baldini.

Baldini has 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 also was 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.
