Ex-Barca-Brasilien-Fußballer Dani Alves des sexuellen Übergriffs schuldig

von NFI Redaktion

Former Barcelona and PSG defender Dani Alves was sentenced to four and a half years in prison in December 2022 for sexually assaulting a woman outside a nightclub in Barcelona. He was also ordered to pay 150,000 euros to the victim.

Following his release, he will also be subject to a five-year probation, and a restraining order will be in place for nine and a half years.

„The verdict assumes that it has been proven that the victim did not consent, and that in addition to the plaintiff’s statement, there is evidence to prove that the assault is established.“ the court said in a statement.

The victim claimed Alves took her to a toilet in the VIP area of the club and then forced her to have sex with him despite her repeated requests to be let go.

According to a friend of Alves who was there that night, Alves drank wine and whiskey before going to the nightclub. While they were at the club, Alves and a woman danced and allegedly had „chemistry.“ According to the friend’s account, the woman seemed fine after returning from the toilet with Alves.

The Brazilian national player was arrested the following month and changed his story further as more evidence surfaced. He initially claimed not to know the victim, then said he had met her but they did not engage in anything in the bathroom. When the biological evidence came back, Alves said she had given him consensual oral sex, then claimed the sex was consensual, and lied because she didn’t want his wife to find out.

According to the victim, she willingly danced with Alves and went with him to the toilet. She said she wanted to leave, and he didn’t allow it, hit her in the face, insulted her, and raped her – which Alves denied during the trial.

„If she wanted to leave, she could have left, she was not obligated to be there.“ he said during his testimony.

Originally, Alves faced up to nine years in prison if convicted. His lawyers told reporters that Alves intends to appeal his verdict.

„We are satisfied as the verdict recognizes what we have been saying all along: that the victim told the truth and that she suffered,“ said the victim’s lawyer, David Saenz ESPN. He added that his team will assess whether the verdict corresponds to the seriousness of the crime.

Alves had played for Pumas UNAM in Mexico but was expelled from the team after his arrest.
