Robinho sentenced to nine years in jail for sexual assault

Robinho sentenced to nine years in jail for sexual assault

Gazzetta Dello Sport revealed that the sentence relates to the group sexual assault of a 22-year-old woman from Albania which was carried out by the Brazilian soccer star and five other men on January 22, 2013.

An Italian court sentenced former Brazil and AC Milan forward Robinho in absentia to nine years in prison on Thursday after convicting him of taking part in a gang rape of an Albanian woman in 2013.

Robinho had previously been accused of sexual assault while at City in 2009 but was later cleared.

The 33-year-old, who has been capped by his country 100 times, also had a spell with Chinese side Guangzhou Evergande.

Robinho has denied the charges.

According to a report by Sky Sports, the 33-year-old star is now in Brazil, playing for Atletico Mineiro.

But the verdict is still on hold as the Italian justice system allows for several levels of appeal and wont make the sentence effective until after such proceedings - if he is still deemed to be culpable. The Brazilian has continually maintained his innocence and he could be acquitted on appeal.

During his time there, Robinho was arrested after a girl alleged that she had been raped at a nightclub in Leeds.
