Helio Castrovenes has been acquitted of tax evasion and avoided a six-year jail sentence after a Miami jury deliberated on the case over six days. Castroneves, the two-time Indianapolis 500 winner and Dancing with the Stars alumni, was accused of six counts of tax evasion over the course of five years. Castroneves' sister and business manager, Katiucia Castroneves was also acquitted on her own tax evasion charges, along with one conspiracy count, and Helio's lawyer, Alan Miller, also avoided six years in prison when he was acquitted of a conspiracy count and three charges of tax evasion.
