Pelé’s Son Gets 33 Years in Prison

Pele’s son Edinho has been sentenced to 33 years behind bars for laundering money obtained through drug trafficking. Edinho, whose real name is Edson Cholbi do Nascimento, was first arrested on drug-trafficking charges in 2005 and reportedly has connections with a notorious drug dealer in Santos. His father has stood by him throughout his legal troubles and said in 2006, “God willing, justice will be done. There is not a shred of evidence against my son.”
