Former Manchester City star, Robinho’s nine-year jail sentence over gang rape upheld by Italian court

Former Manchester City star, Robinho’s nine-year jail sentence over gang rape upheld by Italian court

Former Manchester City star Robinho has failed in his appeal to overturn a nine-year jail sentence for rape.

The incident happened during his time with AC Milan in a nightclub in the Italian city in 2013.

Robinho and five other people were found guilty of gang rape and ordered to pay the victim £50,000 each. The footie star sentenced to nine years behind bars.

The former Brazil striker, 36, immediately contested the ruling – but an Italian court has thrown his appeal out and upheld the sentence.

Robinho has said he will now appeal for a second time.

Under Italian law he won’t be sentenced until the appeals process has been finalised.

Prosecutor Cuno Tarfusser told UOL.com: “[It was] a well-done investigation, seriously, with a correct first-degree sentence.

“Professionally, I am very satisfied, especially for the victim.”
