A Naples court has sentenced former Juventus director Luciano Moggi to five years and four months in prison for his part in the match-fixing scandal that rocked Italy five years ago.
Moggi, who was banned from football for life by a sports court, has been found guilty of criminal association aimed at committing sports fraud.
He was one of 16 people found guilty while eight were cleared, according to Italian news agency ANSA.
As a result of the scandal, Juventus were demoted to the second division and were stripped of the 2005 and 2006 Serie A titles.
AC Milan, Lazio, Fiorentina and Reggina were also involved in the scandal, known as Calciopoli, and were penalised with points deductions.
Fiorentina owners Andrea and Diego Della Valle and Lazio president Claudio Lotito received 15-month sentences today as well as fines of €25,000 each.
Former AC Milan executive Leonardo Meani was given a one-year sentence.
Former Italian football federation vice-president Innocenzo Mazzini was sentenced to 26 months, while ex-referee Massimo De Santis was given 23 months.
Moggi's lawyers have confirmed they will appeal the sentence, with the 74-year-old denying the charges.
