Tomas Repka has been sentenced to six months in prison.
The former West Ham defender and his partner were found guilty in a Czech Republic court of advertising the sexual services of his ex-wife online without her knowledge.
The 44-year-old, who won 46 caps for his country, has been freed on appeal but faces 6 months in prison if he fails to overturn the ruling.
“The former Czech football international Tomáš Řepka has been jailed for 6 months,” a statement on Radio Praha said.
“The Municipal Court in Brno found Řepka guilty of advertising sexual services on the internet in the name of his ex-wife Vlaďka Erbová.
“The 44-year-old’s current partner Kateřina Kristelová has been fined CZK 50k for her part in posting the first of 3 online ads under the guise of being Ms. Erbová. The classifieds were accompanied by the victim’s phone number.”
Repka signed for West Ham in 2001 in a club-record 5.5m pounds deal, going on to make 167 appearances for the club as he helped them return to the EPL in 2005.
While he is a cult hero in east London, his disciplinary record left a lot to be desired. After being sent off on his debut, he was red carded again on his return to the team.
He was capped 46 times for his country, but missed out on Euro 1996 because of suspension.
Repka did, however, play at Euro 2000 as the Czech Republic were eliminated at the group stage.
