Former Barcelona and Brazil star Daniel Alves is sentenced to four years and six months in prison after being found guilty of rape for attack in a Spanish nightclub bathroom

The disgraced formerΒ BarcelonaΒ star was told he had been found guilty this morning at the Barcelona court where he was tried earlier this month after being driven to court in a police van.

The 40-year-old father-of-two is now facing his first night behind bars as a convicted sex offender.

He had been held on remand at Brians 2 Prison near the Catalan capital since his arrest in January last year.

Alves protested his innocence on February 7 after taking the stand on the last day of his three-day trial at Barcelona’s Audiencia Provincial court.

He admitted to having sex in a toilet at upmarket Barcelona nightclub Sutton December 30 2022 with his 23-year-old female accuser, but insisted it was consensual.

The woman he was today found guilty of raping confirmed Alves had forced himself on her when she gave her evidence in court behind her screen.

A friend who was with her the night of the rape broke down in tears as she recalled how the victim was β€œcrying uncontrollably” after leaving the small bathroom where she was ata

State prosecutors had demanded a nine year prison sentence if Alves was convicted and a private prosecutor acting for the victim demanded a 12-year jail term at his trial.
