Businessman convicted in Puig's smuggling case gets month in prison
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10:43 am ET) U.S. District Judge Robert Scola announced Friday that Gilberto Suarez has been sentenced to a month in prison for his role in the smuggling of Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig out of Cuba, according to the Associated Press. The South Florida businessman also received five months of house arrest.

Scola gave Suarez less than the one-year maximum partly because his smuggling role was limited to getting Puig to the Mexico-Texas border in 2012. 

Suarez was one of the Miami-based financiers of the venture in which Puig was taken by boat from Cuba to Mexico. The financiers were to receive a portion of Puig's contract. He eventually signed a seven-year, $42 million deal with the Dodgers.

Court documents showed Suarez received $2.5 million from Puig's contract. However, Suarez has agreed to forfeit a house, a condominium and a Mercedes-Benz.
