Spanish prosecution agency, victim appeal for court to increase Dani Alves’ rape sentence

Judge sends Dani Alves to prison without bail for sexual assault

The Spanish state prosecution agency and the victim, both defendants in Dani Alves’ rape case, are arguing that the player’s sentence should be increased.

Alves, a former Brazilian player, is presently appealing from both parties after being convicted of rape and serving a four-and-a-half-year term.

The judge considered Alves’ payment of €150k in damages to the victim to be a mitigating circumstance, resulting in the lower sentence.

However, both the state and the victim have since contended that this amount was not within Alves’ resources and should not have been considered as such.

Meanwhile, the minimum sentence for Alves’ crime is four years, while the maximum is twelve.

While the victim’s lawyer has not yet formalized their appeal, the state prosecution will argue against the mitigating circumstance, as Alves has not accepted his sentence or shown regret, reports Football Espana.

The Spanish media outlet stated that Alves’ defense is seeking bail until the appeals process is settled and is also appealing to reduce the sentence further.

If the court considers the victim adequately compensated, Alves’ sentence could be reduced to just two years, with over a year already served.

It has also been revealed that even if the current sentence is upheld, Alves could be eligible for day release as early as July this year.
He could be released after serving three-quarters of his sentence for good behavior.
