Leicester City Fans Sentenced For Fighting At Champions League Match With Atletico

A fight broke out after the first tie of the UEFA Champions league
match between Atletico Madrid and Leicester city fans at the Estado
vincente Calderon.

Eight Leicester City fans have
been given suspended prison
sentences for their part in
brawls after their Champions
League match with Atletico
Madrid.

The supporters – who were not identified - were each given four month
suspended sentences. Among
them were a father and son. A plea deal was reached
between their defence lawyers and the state
prosecutor when they appeared in court after
spending 36 hours in police custody.

They arrived at court still
nursing injuries sustained
during clashes with riot police in Madrid's picturesque Plaza Mayor square.

They were warned that if they did not accept the terms
agreed between the lawyers
they could face a long wait in
jail on remand before a full
trial. The prosecutor had originally intended to ask for at least two
of those arrested to be imprisoned for up to three years if convicted
of inflicting injuries.

Instead the judge handed
down the agreed sentence of
four months, suspended for
two years.
