    Raul Mondesi sentenced to eight years in prison in the Dominican Republic

    A court in the Dominican Republic has sentenced former major league outfielder Raul Mondesi to eight years in prison for corruption and mishandling of public funds while serving as mayor of his hometown of San Cristobal.

    Mondesi, the 1994 National League Rookie of the Year while with the Los Angeles Dodgers, had been under house arrest since February while awaiting trial.

    The three-judge panel also fined Mondesi the equivalent of $1.27 million for defrauding more than $6 million during his time as mayor from 2010 to 2016. Three of Mondesi's staff members also were sentenced.

    I remember that but that's just a different/similar thing that also happened.

    Uribe did it and then his brother took the fall so as to allow Uribe to continue making MLB money. I remember reading a really good article about it years ago. Still unproven I'd imagine.

    I know he was involved in a shooting with his brother, but I'd never heard of that. Hmm...

    I may be crossing up the machete thing, you could be right on that, coulda been a shooting.

    I just know Uribe murdered a guy and his brother took the fall so Uribe could continue making millions, supporting their family/families, etc.

    They both killed or tried to kill somebody.

    Urbina had to deal with the consequences. Uribe sent his brother instead.

    Could not find anything online to substantiate your claim.
