Court rules Robinho must serve Italian gang rape sentence in Brazil

March 21, 2024

Former Manchester City and Real Madrid striker Robinho must serve a nine-year rape sentence -- imposed on him by an Italian court -- in Brazil, judges in Brasilia ruled Wednesday. The former Brazil international, now 40, was convicted by an Italian court in 2017 for the crime committed four years earlier, when he was playing for AC Milan. He lost in the Milan Court of Appeal in 2020 and then had his sentence upheld by Italy's highest court in 2022, after which Italian prosecutors issued an international arrest warrant for him. Brazil does not extradite its nationals, however, and Italy asked that Robinho be made to serve his sentence in his home country instead. Brazil president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva had said he hoped Robinho could serve his sentence on home soil.
