Footballer Robinho Sentenced to 9 Years in Prison over Sexual Assault

Former Manchester City and Brazil star striker, Robinho has been sentenced to 9 years in jail for sexual assault, according to Sky News reports.

The 33-year old was found guilty of assaulting a 22-year old lady he met in a Milan bar along with 5 other men when he still played for AC Milan in 2013.

Five other men were also accused of the same crime. Their sentences are not yet known.

The Corriere della Sera newspaper reported that the Albanian woman had been made to drink "to the point of making her unconscious and unable to resist".

Robinho and the five men were then accused of engaging in "sexual intercourse multiple times in a row" with the victim.

The striker who now plays for Atletico Mineiro in his native country denied the charges but was eventually found guilty. He however has the right of appeal and until the process is followed, the sentence cannot take effect.

Robinho, whose full name is Robson de Souza, played over 40 games for Manchester City between 2008 and 2010 after signing from Real Madrid. He then went on loan to Santos before eventually joining Milan.
