The expelotero of Great Leagues Miguel Tejada was condemned yesterday to a year of prison, with suspended sentence and the payment of three million 645 thousand pesos by breach of an agreement.
Judge Diana Moreno, of the Eighth Criminal Chamber of the Court of First Instance of the National District, issued the sentence because Tejada broke the agreement, arrived in December of last year, with a businessman to whom he had given a check without funds.
Likewise, it rejected the exclusion of the check notice requested by the defense, and imposed the payment of the costs of the proceeding and an indemnity of 200 thousand pesos for the damages caused to the victim. Tejada was sentenced to one year in prison suspended in the Barahona prison for violating the Check Law.
Tejada, nicknamed “La Guagua” for his ability to tow races, was active 16 seasons in the majors as third baseman and shortstop after debuting with the Oakland Athletics in 1997.
