Boris Becker moved to different prison and could face deportation at end of sentence

jailed last month for two and a half years for hiding £2.5million of assets and loans to avoid paying debts. The former world No.1 and BBC commentator, 54, was declared bankrupt on June 21 2017 - owing creditors almost £50million - over an unpaid loan of more than £3 million on his estate in Mallorca.The German, who has lived in the UK since 2012, is expected to serve half of his sentence behind bars.

Becker’s lawyer told journalists in Berlin that he has been transferred to the lower security category C Huntercombe prison near Henley-on-Thames, Oxon.Christian-Oliver Moser said: “It is a Category C prison, which means it has a low security level.”He was reportedly previously at the category B Wandsworth prison in south west London. A UK Government source saying Becker met the criteria to be considered for deportation and his case would be considered in the usual way.The six-time Grand Slam champion would qualify for automatic deportation because he is a foreign national who is not thought to have British citizenship and has received a prison sentence of more than 12 months.He could appeal against the decision.Becker is said to be planning a book on his fall from grace.He’s keeping boredom at bay by writing a jail diary chronicling his court battle and downfall.A source said: “It’ll be a warts-and-all diary on how he got himself in such a troubling position and then what life is like in jail.“It will also focus on other things in his life.

He’s trying to keep himself busy in jail. This is a good way.

Boris Becker found guilty over bankruptcy, could face jail
LONDON -- Tennis great Boris Becker could face a jail sentence after being found guilty on Friday of illicitly moving thousands of dollars from a bank account after he was declared bankrupt.A jury at London’s Southwark Crown Court convicted Becker on four charges under the Insolvency Act, including removal of property, concealing debt and two counts of failing to disclose estate.The German star was found to have transferred hundreds of thousands of pounds (dollars) after his June 2017 bankruptcy from his business account to other accounts, including those of his ex-wife Barbara and estranged wife Sharlely “Lilly” Becker.He was also convicted of failing to declare a property in Germany and hiding an 825,000 euro ($895,000) bank loan and shares in a tech firm.He was acquitted on 20 other counts, including charges that he failed to hand over his many awards, including two Wimbledon trophies and an Olympic gold medal.The six-time Grand Slam champion had denied all the charges, saying he had cooperated with trustees tasked with securing his assets - even offering up his wedding ring - and had acted on expert advice.Becker’s bankruptcy stemmed from a 4.6 million euro ($5 million) loan from a private bank in 2013, as well as about $1.6 million borrowed from a British businessman the year after, according to testimony at the trial.During the trial Becker, 54, said his $50 million career earnings had been swallowed up by payments for an “expensive divorce” and debts when he lost large chunks of his income after retirement.He said he had “expensive lifestyle commitments” including a house in Wimbledon that cost 22,000 pounds ($28,800) in rent each month.
