Messi's brother on the risk of serving a Jail term.

Matias Messi told he could be jailed for up to eight  years  if found guilty of possessing illegal firearm. 

Matias was arrested in the hospital after a gun was discovered in a blood covered boat he abandoned following and accident. The 35-year -old is one of the two older bothers of Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi.

He was arrested for possession of a firearm after a loaded pistol was found in a boat he was in following the mystery incident. The 35-year-old has now been warned that he could be jailed for 8 and a half years if convicted of illegal possession of a firearm.

Matias was arrested in the hospital on Friday December 1 after Police said they had discovered a gun in a boat Matias is claiming he abandoned following an accident the day before.

He was treated by the Doctor for injuries which include a broken jaw and facial cuts but a judge decided the 35-year-old should be remanded in prison once he is well enough to leave hospital, although there is a possibility he may be allowed to continue his recovery at home.

The minimum prison sentence Matias could face for illegal firearms conviction is three and half years although his lawyer Ignacio Carbone suggests the gun found on the boat could have been planted by cops.

He remained under police guard over the weekend at the Sanatorio Parque - a private hospital in their native city of Rosario in Argentina.
