Ronaldinho has been freed after agreeing guilty plea over fake passport charge in Paraguay

Share This



Brazilian football legend Ronaldinho has been set free to return home after five months living under house arrest in Paraguay with his brother, Roberto Assis.

Recall that the former Barcelona star and his brother were arrested in Paraguay in March after using false passports to enter the country.

They were released from prison after lawyers posted a $1.6 million (£1.3m) bail on their behalf in April and placed under house arrest in a hotel in Asuncion to await trial.

Ronaldinho and his brother had faced up to five years behind bars if convicted.

According to Goal, they have pleaded guilty to entering the country with fake passports as part of the agreement. Ronaldinho has paid a fine of $90,000, while Assis has been fined $110,000.

While Assis will now have a criminal record in Paraguay, Ronaldinho will not.

Assis is not permitted to leave Brazil for two years, and must periodically present himself to Brazilian authorities in Rio de Janeiro during that 24-month span.

Ronaldinho and Assis were initially detained after producing the fake documents having travelled to Paraguay to take part in a number of promotional events.

They spent 32 days in the maximum security Agrupacion Especializada prison after being arrested at the Resort Yacht and Golf Club Paraguay.
