PRAGUE (AP) — Former Czech Republic defender Tomas Repka has been handed another nine-month jail sentence.

The latest verdict comes less than two weeks after he was convicted of fraud on Feb. 7 and sentenced to 15 months in prison. The Prague-West county court on Tuesday turned two previous suspended sentences for drunk driving into jail terms because of his convictions for other crimes since receiving the initial terms.

The former West Ham and Fiorentina has appealed both verdicts.

Last year, Repka also received a six-month jail term for offering sexual services in the name of his former wife. That was later changed to community service.
