As a result, Carew will serve 14 months in prison.
Not happy with the entire verdict
Økokrim had originally sought a two-year prison sentence for Care. They make it clear that they are not satisfied with everything in the judgment.
– but he has been sentenced to a long prison term for gross tax evasion. Based on the overall assessment, we have decided not to appeal the verdict, says Marianne Bender, the first public prosecutor in Okogrim.
Økokrim believed the former football star and property investor had evaded NOK 5.4 million in tax over six years. During these years, Carew formally resided in Great Britain, but he spent most of his time in Norway, which triggered a tax liability.
The Oslo District Court convicted him of failing to declare taxable income of approximately NOK 12.8 million and assets of NOK 307 million. The court ruled that Carev must be taxed in Norway on all of its income and assets during the litigation period.
Økokrim asked Care to be sentenced to two years in prison, but his sentence was reduced after he made an unreserved confession in court.
When the verdict was handed down, Reiss-Andersen said she believed Økokrim had overreacted in the case.
– After his unreserved confession, the case should have gone as a confessional case, the judgment asserted, adding that the case has caused unnecessary use of public resources to society and public burden caused to Care, he said.

– The trust I showed him, he earned. He is someone my family and I look forward to. He called me his illegitimate son. He is my backup dad. That confidence didn’t come overnight, Carew said.
Flod told DN earlier this month that he thought the case was tragic and the sentence undeserved. When asked what he thought of his own role, he replied:
– I don’t know what the wrong advice must have been. Not being able to keep track of how long John was in Norway and England was something I couldn’t do anything about, Flatt said.
