Another one to be proud of: Tiziano Pieri.

phone cards
After the Italian match fixing scandal in 2006, a new investigation was started when police (and journalists) found out Juventus boss Moggi - the centre of it all - had had telephone conversations using SIM cards bought in Switzerland, so untapable. One of the recipients of those calls was Tiziano Pieri.

end of career/ prison
He received his FIFA badge in 2006, was suspended for 1,5 year by the Italian football association in 2007 and taken off the international list. Then in 2009 he was sentenced to 28 months in prison. He is unlikely to serve his sentence though, because of the appeals process and a broad pardon for non-violent offenses committed before 2006.
