Notre Dame Composer Jailed


Richard Cocciante

NOTRE DAME DE PARIS composer Richard Cocciante was sentenced to 10 months behind bars for tax fraud by a Paris, France, court today (20MAR06). The 60-year-old and his wife CATHERINE were found guilty of concealing profits from the hit musical, believed to be in the region of six million euros ($7.3 million/GBP4.3 million). The couple, who were not present in court, insist they intend to appeal against the ruling. Notre Dame De Paris took the French capital by storm when it opened in 1998 and has since enraptured audiences across the globe. Cocciante enjoyed a successful recording career in the 1970s and 1980s, releasing pop songs in several European languages.
