Maguire will not face jail time if found guilty, says lawyer

London, Aug 25 (IANS) It is unlikely that England defender Harry Maguire will face any jail time if he is found guilty of charges of assault and attempted bribery of a police officer, according to a lawyer in Mykonos.

The Manchester United captain spent two nights in police custody after he was arrested during a holiday with family and friends on the Greek island of Mykonos, as per a Sky Sports report.

Maguire denied charges of aggravated assault and attempted bribery of an official.

Zannis Panayotakopoulos, a lawyer in Mykonos, has said the charges Maguire faces are not serious felony charges.

“Bribes are very serious crimes in Greece,” said Zannis as quoted by Sky Sports.

“But I believe that it has become a misdemeanour. The highest sentence can be five years imprisonment and a fine.

“But most of these crimes have big and heavy fines and definitely not prison time. In Greece, in our legal system, we have second chances.”
