Spanish singer Isabel Pantoja turned herself in to authorities on Friday morning (21Nov14) to begin her two-year sentence for money-laundering.

The 58-year-old folk star was found guilty of laundering money on behalf of her politician ex-boyfriend Julian Munoz last year (13), and she subsequently failed in her bid to overturn the conviction.

Pantoja was given until Saturday (22Nov14) to report to a Spanish prison of her choice, and on Friday morning (21Nov14), she left her lavish estate and surrendered herself to the authorities at the gates of the Alcala de Guadaira women's prison near Seville to begin serving her jail term.

Munoz has been jailed for seven years for his part in a corrupt scheme which provided building permits in exchange for bribes.
