Boris Becker jailed for 2.5 years

Becker was sentenced on 29th April 2022 after being convicted of bankruptcy offences.

Boris Becker has been sentenced to two years and six months in prison for removing property worth close to €427,000 from his bankruptcy estate. He received 18 months on three other counts, to be served concurrently.
