A Spanish court on Wednesday sentenced an early childhood development teacher to eight months in prison after she pleaded guilty to falsifying official data.
Marta, 40, was arrested in November 2017 when she was trying to take a pay cut in exchange for working from home to earn more.
Prosecutors said she submitted false records to the National Development Institute (UDI), an agency that investigates child labour.
In a statement on its website, UDI said the charges against Marta were “false and without foundation”.
In January, the UDI ruled that she had been found guilty of fraudulently falsifying her income and documents in order to receive the minimum wage.
The judge, Juan Carlos Martínez, ordered that she serve eight months of a three-year suspended sentence and that she be banned from work.
