Brazil striker given prison sentence


Brazilian footballer Robinho has been sentenced to nine years in prison for taking part in the gang rape of a woman in Milan in 2013, APA reports quoting BBC.

 

An Italian court ruled the 33-year-old and five other Brazilians assaulted the Albanian woman, who was 22, after plying her with alcohol in a nightclub.

 

The forward, who left AC Milan in 2015 after five years, was not in court but pleaded not guilty via his lawyer.

 

The sentence will be put on hold until the appeals process is completed.

 

Robinho, capped 100 times by his country, spent two years at Manchester City and currently plays for Atletico Mineiro in Brazil.
