My guess is that nothing will happen and he will be found innocent or a slap on the wrist.

Lionel Messi will stand trial in Spain on three counts of tax fraud and could be sentenced to nearly two years in prison if found guilty.

A Spanish judge on Thursday rejected a request to clear the Barcelona player of wrongdoing and decided to charge him and his father, Jorge Horacio Messi, with tax fraud.

I'm not so sure.

I may be shown to be wrong, but if there's one thing the law is set up to control it's tax evasion.

Beat someone up, kill your wife, maybe you end up with a slapped wrist, or even acquitted.

Deny the State that which it is owed, then watch out.
