Brazilian soccer star Daniel Alves has been convicted of sexual assault and sentenced to prison.

“A Spanish court sentenced Alves to four years and six months in prison for the sexual assault he committed on Dec. 30, 2022, in a Sutton nightclub,” Spanish media outlet As reported on Wednesday.

Alves will also have to undergo supervision for five years after his release from prison, and a restraining order was issued against the victim. The court also ordered Alves to pay 150,000 euros (about $216 million) to compensate the woman and pay for court costs.

“The victim said no to the accused, but he suddenly grabbed her, pushed her to the ground and immobilized her. He then forcibly committed the sexual offense. It is clear that the act was non-consensual,” the court said, explaining the reasoning behind the prison sentence.

The victim’s defense lawyers said they were “satisfied that the truth of the case was recognized.” Alves’ lawyer, Ines Guardiola, said: “We will appeal the verdict. We continue to believe in his innocence,” said Alves’ lawyer, Ines Guardiola.

Alves is accused of sexually assaulting a woman in her 20s in the bathroom of a nightclub in Barcelona. Alves changed his story four times from the beginning of the investigation and sought a reduced sentence due to excessive drinking. The victim, on the other hand, was consistent, and DNA tests showed traces of Alves’ bodily fluids.

As a result, Spanish courts have held Alves in custody for more than a year. Alves applied for bail twice, in February and June of last year, but the court rejected his request because it believed he was a flight risk. Alves offered to surrender his passport and wear a tracking device while awaiting a court decision, but this was not accepted.

Sentences for sex offenses in Spain can range from online abuse to groping to rape. If convicted, you can face a minimum sentence of four to 15 years in prison. In Alves’ case, Spanish prosecutors sought nine years in prison, and the court sentenced him to four and a half years in prison, half of what was requested in the first trial.

However, Alves will reportedly be eligible for parole in May 2024. “Although Alves was sentenced to four and a half years, he has already served one year and two months, as his detention began on January 20, 2023,” said Marca. Under Spanish correctional law, a prisoner is eligible for parole after serving at least one-third of his sentence. Therefore, he will be eligible for parole in three months.”

“If Alves is granted parole, he will be deported to Brazil. If he is a foreigner and the sentence does not exceed five years, he can request deportation to his country, and the Spanish court will allow it.”

Alves’s fall from grace was from soccer star to sex offender. Alves’ reputation in his home country has been greatly tarnished, with his statue in Brazil being covered in garbage 토토사이트 bags and wrapped in duct tape.

Alves is a right-sided defender who spent his playing days at FC Barcelona. His aggressive overlapping style established him as one of the best right backs in the world, and he scored 21 goals and provided 101 assists in 391 total appearances over eight years at Barcelona. During that time, Alves won six Spanish Primera Liga titles, four Copa del Rey titles, three UEFA Champions League titles, three UEFA Super Cups, and three FIFA Club World Cups, among other honors.

He went on to play for Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain before returning to the Brazilian league. After leaving Europe, Alves returned to Barcelona in his mid-30s and made a splash. In 2021, he returned to Barcelona at the urging of coach Xavi Hernandez and returned to his best form, scoring one goal and providing four assists in 14 games.

He’s also been a standout for the Brazilian national team. Alves, who has represented Brazil since 2006, was named to the final roster for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, making him the oldest player ever to play in a World Cup. He has 126 caps for Brazil, scoring eight goals in 126 appearances.

Alves joined Pumas UNAM in the Mexican league, but his career was cut short when he was detained on sex offense charges and forced to retire in disgrace. The Mexican club was disappointed with his behavior and terminated his contract.
