A Hong Kong court slapped a  six-year sentence  on the  head honcho of Birmingham City Football Club for money laundering

Birmingham City Football Club boss Carson Yeung was sentenced to six years in jail on Friday for laundering $93 million following a high-profile trial that cast a spotlight on how the hairdresser-turned-businessman made his fortune.

Yeung, 54, who had denied the charges of laundering the money between January 2001 and December 2007, had faced up to seven years in jail. He was found guilty by a Hong Kong court on Monday of five counts of money-laundering. He had denied the charges.

In glasses and a face mask, Yeung bowed his head as he left the court building in a prison van after the sentence.
