A Spanish court said Friday it had replaced Barcelona star Lionel Messi's prison sentences for tax fraud with fines.Following the ruling by Barcelona's provincial court, Messi will instead pay 252,000 euros ($287,000) and his father 180,000 euros in fines. The fines correspond to 400 euros for each day the two men were sentenced to jail.The player and his father made a voluntary payment of 5 million euros – equal to the amount of the alleged unpaid taxes plus interest – in August 2013 after being formally investigated. They were also fined around 3.5 million euros when they were convicted for tax fraud.
