Ex-NL Rookie Of Year Raul Mondesi Satisfies Six-Year Prison Sentence Via House Arrest, Court Rules

Former National League Rookie of the Year Raul Mondesi was sentenced to six years and nine months in prison, but it seems those issues are behind him after he served his house arrest.

Per the LA Times, Mondesi won't have serve any time in prison for the corruption charges of which he was accused, as ruled by a Dominican court.

Mondesi, 53, was named NL Rookie of the Year in 1994 while with the Los Angeles Dodgers. He also spent time with the Toronto Blue Jays, New York Yankees, Pittsburgh Pirates, Arizona Diamondbacks, Atlanta Braves and LA Angels over the course of his 13-year MLB career.

He then got into politics once his playing days were over — which is when his legal troubles began.

"Mondesi had been caught up in corruption charges from his time as mayor of the city of San Cristobal in the Dominican Republic which he was convicted of in 2017," the New York Post wrote.

"Mondesi had been placed on house arrest while he appealed the case, which was only completed on Friday.

"As part of the 2017 conviction, Mondesi was fined $1.3 million for defrauding over $6 million and could not hold public office for 10 years."

Specifically, Mondesi was charged with "conspiracy of officials, falsification of documents, use of false documents, prevarication, embezzlement, and crimes of mixing in affairs incompatible with the quality of official and association of criminals."

"After retiring, he returned to San Cristobal, where he was from, and eventually ended up in politics, where he was elected to the Chamber of Deputies, which is similar to the U.S. House of Representatives," the Post wrote.

Mondesi served as mayor of San Cristobal from 2010-16.
