Celebrity German chef Alphonse Shubeck has appealed after being sentenced to three years and two months in prison for tax evasion. “Alphonse Shohbeck stands by his crime, but wants to be able to understand the verdict on the basis of the written reasons for the verdict,” his lawyers said today through a spokesperson.
Against this background, the 73-year-old asked his attorney to appeal the district court’s ruling. A spokesman for the Munich District Court confirmed that “a fax with an appeal has been received.”
“If the written reasons support the local court’s decision, I will ask the attorneys to withdraw the appeal in case of doubt,” Shohbek said, according to the statement. Until then, I will not relent in my efforts to repair the damage as much as possible.”
Last week, the Munich First District Court sentenced Schuhbeck to three years and two months in prison for tax evasion. At such a level, parole is no longer possible. According to the court, the prominent chef smuggled about 2.3 million euros through the tax office. According to a spokeswoman, the Public Prosecution Office does not want to appeal the ruling.
