Last April, former Grand Slam champion Boris Becker received a two-and-a-half-year prison sentence on fraudulent bankruptcy charges. He is sorry that the German is serving in the Wandsworth prison in United Kingdom, where, however, he would not be living the stay as hard as some could imagine.
This is what he leaks from the facility's inmates and their respective families, whose voice was borrowed from a secret source. First of all, the latter complain about the fact that Boris Becker almost immediately received the position of teacher of English and sports, something that a prisoner can manage to earn as a prize but only after some time: "Usually you have to serve years service before getting a job as a teaching assistant, because it is seen as a privilege," said the anonymous source.
The German, on the other hand, got the job a few weeks after his entry into prison, which is the envy of the other inmates. The source then added: "Boris Becker doesn't exactly have the luxurious life in prison he's used to, but he's doing better than most inmates."
What happened The trial against Boris Becker began on 21 March. A process that then definitively sentenced him to two and a half years in prison. Becker actually faced up to seven years in prison, but the Southwark judge ultimately decided to give the former German tennis player a sentence equivalent to 30 months in prison.
Becker who will serve half the sentence in prison and the remaining period of detention under a semi-release regime. "It is noteworthy that she did not admit his guilt and did not even show remorse," explained judge Deborah Taylor during the sentence.
"There was a total lack of humility on her part." In all, there are four, out of 24 total, the charges related to the affair for which he was convicted. Becker, who has always pleaded innocent, had entrusted his reaction to the allegations to his Twitter account for the past few years: "Innocent until proven otherwise!
I deny the charges against me and will defend myself by all legal means I believe in the UK legal system and its agents. My team of lawyers will prove my innocence."
