The brother-in-law of Spain's king turned himself in to authorities on Monday to serve nearly six years in jail for crimes including tax fraud and embezzlement, a prison spokesman said.Inaki Urdangarin signed himself into the Brieva prison in Avila at around 8:00 a.m. He had been given a five-day deadline last Tuesday to appear at a penal institution of his choosing for the five-year 10-month sentence. Cristina was the first member of the Spanish royal family ever to stand in a dock.Urdangarin, a retired Spanish handball player, appealed the sentence before the Supreme Court, which cut the sentence slightly after overturning a part of the original ruling by the Mallorcan Court.
