other articles seemed to point to the possibility she may be charged with up to 11 years of prison. but i don't believe a minute she will even spend a day in prison, but hope i am proved wrong. iñaki doesn't believe he should go to prison, and he only married into the royal family.


on another note, iñaki was spotted flying from bilbao to barcelona on low cost airline vueling ealier this week.

I can't believe the amount of years the press is circulating. Is Spanish law so much different from other european countries, eg Germany? We just had our biggest public case there, Uli Hoeness, not royalty but a highly respected member of society, a super sucessful football manager, got caught for tax evasion (28.5 Mio EUR). Taxpayers money is kind of public money. There were no prior convictions, he pleaded guilty, had to repay, got a bit over 3 years in prison, now his is already a day release prisoner.

Don't get me wrong, if Inaki is convicted he could get exactly what he deserves, and I am not into law but I can't help feeling that speaking of 11, 15 or even 20 years is kind of polemic what will backfire in case he will get much less. I've said it before, people convicted of manslaughter, even murder, or paedophiles get away with much less.

You are correct DoM, but manslaughter, murder and especially pedophiles should NEVER get away with a light sentence. 20 years is even too light for them. Time correct punishment was imposed. As far as this case, IMO a strict public community service sentence, along with all monies repaid [even if they have to sell everything of value that was purchased by embezzled money] preformed by outside firm. I believe that would hurt them much more than jail time in a posh setting, like many of the wealthy of the world get. They are not any threat physically to others as are murders, etc., just immoral people that felt they were entitled. This of course still only if found guilty.

Personally, if found guilty, I would love for them to serve time in jail, even if only for a year. This would certainly serve to show the world, even Royals and well-connected cannot break the law and get away with it completely.
