Ronaldinho to be freed from Paraguayan jail into house arrest

Brazilian World Cup winner Ronaldinho Gaucho will be released from jail into house arrest in Paraguay on Tuesday after he and his brother paid $1.6 million in bail, the judge in his case said.

The former Barcelona, Paris St Germain and AC Milan
midfielder, who won the World Cup with Brazil in 2002, was arrested on
March 6 with his brother and business manager Roberto Assis.

They
were accused of possessing adulterated Paraguayan passports. The
brothers’ lawyer has called their detention “arbitrary, abusive and
illegal.”
