It's been a tough day for the founders of Dolce & Gabbana. The Italian designers, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana were found guilty of tax evasion and sentenced to almost two years of jail time. After a three-hour jury room meeting, Judge Antonella Brambilla gave his final verdict in order to close the case that dates back to 2010. The original court case was thrown out due to a lack of evidence but it appears that the second trial seems to have had enough evidence for the charges to stick.
Dolce & Gabbana has already paid $440 million USD in fines stemming from the label's 2004 sale to Gado Srl, a luxury brand conglomerate based in Luxembourg. According to the presiding judge of their recent trial, D&G intentionally sold their label to Gado Srl to evade Italian taxes. The judge seems to be making an example out of the designers although the initial prosecution requested jail time for Dolce's brother and board member Alfonso Dolce, board member and general director Cristiana Ruella, and finance director Giuseppe Minoni. The fashion brand's accountant, Luciano Patelli, is also facing three years in jail as the "main orchestrato" for the sale of D&G to Gado Srl.
