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.
