Wife of former Mariners outfielder sentenced to prison for ripping off Felix Hernandez’s wife

Last October the news broke that Maria Peguero, wife of then-Mariners outfielder Carlos Peguero, faced federal wire-fraud charges for making nearly $180,000 worth of online purchases on a debit card belonging to Sandra Hernandez, the wife of Mariners starter Felix Hernandez.

In February she pled guilty. Today she was sentenced: she’ll do a year and a day in prison and has agreed to make restitution.

Carlos Peguero now plays for Omaha in the Royals organization. I doubt that Maria is going to Leavenworth over this, but if she becomes a problem inmate and gets shipped there for some reason, she’ll be less than a three hour drive away.
