Jail sentence confirmed

Last Wednesday the court in Rome has confirmed the original ruling from 2017 that Robson de Souza (for the wide public known as Robinho) have to spent nine years in prison and to give 60.000 euros fine as a damages to the victim. He was accused of being part at a gang rape (together with his friends) over a 23-year-old Albanian woman at the Sio cafe nightclub in Milan at 2013.
Since the first verdict about this violent sexual assault was announced five years ago, the 38-year-old ex- footballer has filed an appeal twice, but both of them got rejected, which means that the upper judgment became final. At the time of the sentence the player was in his home country, so now it remains to be seen whether the former striker will serve either in Italian or Brazilian jail because the law (clearly) says that Brazil does not extradite its citizens to other countries.
