Ten men, aged between 25 to 53 years old, have been sentenced for financial crimes in a major sex club scandal in Stockholm.

All eight men have received different sentences. The longest sentence is for three years, while two men went free.

The three main perpetrators each received the maximum sentence of three years. Their crime is gross tax evasion and false accounting. All three were also banned from engaging in business for the next ten years.

One of the men is a 40-year-old former police officer who left the Stockholm County Police department two years ago.

The men ran two strip clubs in Stockholm and had a turnover of over 40 million kronor ($6.6 million).

Last summer suspicions surfaced when it emerged that the clubs' owners were sending large sums of money to Estonia and the Netherlands, and then returning the laundered money back to Sweden.

The money was never declared to the tax authorities.
