Robinho To Serve Nine-Year Rape Sentence

A Brazilian court has decided that former forward Robinho of Manchester City and Real Madrid shall serve a nine-year term for rape in his native country.

An Italian court determined in 2017 that Robinho, 40, had participated in the 2013 gang rape of a 22-year-old Albanian woman.

Brazil, which does not extradite its citizens, is where he has been residing. On Wednesday, Brasilian judges decided, at Italy’s request, that he should serve out his term in Brazil.

Lawyers stated that he will stay free pending the possibility of an appeal against the decision.

At the time of the incident, the former Brazil international—who has 100 caps for his nation—was on the AC Milan team.

After being found guilty, he lost an appeal in 2020 before Italy’s highest court upheld his sentence in 2022.
