Milan court release details of Robinho’s sentence


Former Brazil international striker Robinho has been given 45 days to appeal against the latest ruling to the Supreme Court of Cassation, after his nine-year prison sentence was confirmed by the Milan Court of Appeal.

The court of appeals this week released details about a sentence against Robinho, saying he belittled and brutally humiliated the woman he sexually assaulted in 2013.

In December, the appeals court ruled to uphold the nine-year prison sentence of Robinho that was initially handed down in 2017 for his involvement in a gang rape.

The appeal court also ruled that Robinho and his friend Ricardo Falco, who was also found guilty, tried to mislead investigators from the start by giving a false version of events which the two had previously agreed on.

The decision was made by a group of three judges, Francesca Vitale (who presided over the trial), Paola Di Lorenzo and Chiara Nobili.

The incident occurred in Milan while Robinho was on the books of Serie A side AC Milan.
