Spanish Singer Isabel Pantoja Has Returned To Her Jail Cell Once More After She Was Granted Her Third Visit With Her Family.
The folk star, 59, is serving a two-year sentence for money laundering, but she has been allowed out of the Alcala de Guadaira jail, near Seville, for short breaks since beginning the punishment last November (14).
This time, she was given six days of temporary leave, which she spent on her farm in Cadiz, before reporting back to authorities this week (begs12Oct15). She had previously enjoyed brief stints of freedom in June and July (15).
The news emerges weeks after she was denied her latest appeal to overturn her 2013 conviction for laundering cash on behalf of her politician ex-boyfriend, Julian Munoz. He was jailed for seven years for his part in the corruption scheme, which provided building permits in exchange for bribes.
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
