Moggi may face another jail sentence

MILAN - Former Juventus general manager Luciano Moggi, banned from football for five years for his leading role in a 2006 match-fixing scandal, could face a three-year jail sentence in a separate case.

Judicial sources said on Thursday that Turin prosecutors want Moggi and two other former Juve officials to receive two to three year sentences if found guilty of false accounting when in charge at the Serie A club. They deny the charges.

Moggi, also involved in a criminal trial for the match-fixing, was handed an 18-month jail sentence in January in a separate transfer corruption case but will not serve time because of a general pardon.
