Bloomberg:  “Professional golfer Jim Thorpe, who has won more than $15 million in his career, was sentenced to one year in prison for failing to pay U.S. income taxes for three years.  Thorpe’s request to avoid prison time was rejected today by U.S. Magistrate Judge Karla Spaulding in Orlando, Florida. The former college football player pleaded guilty in September to two counts of tax evasion for failing to pay more than $2 million in personal income taxes for 2002, 2003 and 2004.
