    A court in the Dominican Republic has sentenced former major league outfielder Raul Mondesi to eight years in prison for corruption and mishandling of public funds while serving as mayor of his hometown of San Cristobal.

    Mondesi, the 1994 National League Rookie of the Year while with the Los Angeles Dodgers, had been under house arrest since February while awaiting trial.

    The three-judge panel also fined Mondesi the equivalent of $1.27 million for defrauding more than $6 million during his time as mayor from 2010 to 2016. Three of Mondesi's staff members also were sentenced.
