MILAN — Less than a year after his deposition at Milan’s courthouse, George Clooney can say justice has been served.
A first-degree sentence condemned the three defendants accused of fraudulently using the Oscar-winning actor to launch a signature women’s and men’s clothing line. Vanja Goffi and Francesco Galdelli were respectively sentenced to three years and 10 months and three years and six months of jail time. Vincenzo Cannalire, managing director of GC Exclusive, was condemned to one year and 10 months in jail. “The evidence was enough for a trial, which had a regular procedure,” said a well-placed legal source, adding that it will be “interesting” to read the reasonings behind the sentence, due out in about a month.
