Presently, the World Cup winner does not know when he will be released from prison after being accused of using fake passport to enter Paraguay with his brother.
As it is now, Ronaldinho could be sent to six months in jail if authorities in charge later come out that he is guilty of what he has been accused of.

According to the report by ESPN, they explained that Ronaldinho is being loved by all the inmates who are learning some basic football skills from the Brazilian.
They also claimed that Ronaldinho is now learning carpentry, but he is missing his mother and also his love for music.
Report by ESPN added that Ranaldinho speaks with his mother everyday who comforts him and wishes her son well for him to get out of the prison.

His lawyers tried last week to convince the judge handling the matter to change his case to house arrest instead of him being in the jail, but the lawmaker refused.
The judge claimed that giving Ronaldinho a bail or house arrest will have big consequence on the rules governing Paraguay.
Earlier, YEN.com.gh had reported how Barcelona legend Ronaldinho seems to have won the hearts of inmates in the Paraguayan prison owing to his football skills.
The Brazilian star turns 40 on March 21, and he will most likely celebrate his fourth decade on earth behind bars.
Ronaldinho has been behind bars in the south American country for using fake papers to gain entrance alongside his brother.
Further reports claim the former AC Milan star could be sent to jail for six months if he is found guilty of a money laundering case against him.
