In a wide-ranging tax fraud case that captivated Spain, Princess Cristina was found not guilty Friday of being an accessory to fraud but her husband was convicted and sentenced to more than six years in prison.A panel of judges ruled that Cristina, the 51-year-old sister of King Felipe VI, will be required to pay nearly 265,000 euros (over $280,000) in fines because the court considers that she indirectly benefited from the fraud.The trial centered on accusations that Urdangarin used his former title, the Duke of Palma, to embezzle about 6 million euros in public funds for the nonprofit Noos Institute.Ten people in all, including Cristina, were absolved by the court.
