Daniel Alves may be entitled to a semi-open regime

Former player Daniel Alves was sentenced, this Thursday (22), to 4 years and 6 months in prison for rape. The Barcelona court announced the sentencing sentence in relation to the case in which the former Brazilian national team player is guilty of attacking and abusing a woman, in the bathroom of the Sutton nightclub, in 2022 .A

The player faces the possibility of obtaining the right to parole after serving half of his 4-year sentence. The right to the semi-open regime could happen in April 2025. According to Spanish legislation, he will be able to leave prison during the day, but will have to return at night to serve his sentence. If he obtains the right to semi-employment, he will be able to work during the day or even stay with his family.Â

The player's sentence begins to run from the time of his arrest, in January 2023. He was found guilty, but received a more lenient sentence. The player's conviction is far from the 9 years in prison requested by the Spanish prosecutor's office, and much less close to the 12 years requested by the rape victim.

The sentence of 4 years and 6 months in prison shows the application of justice in the punishment for the crime committed. The court decision determined compensation of 150 thousand euros (around R$804 thousand) to the victim, for moral and physical damages, including the costs of the process. The fine of 9 thousand euros was imposed for the crime of minor bodily harm. In addition, he will have to pay an additional 150 euros per day for two months. This penalty aims to punish the aggressor and compensate the victim for the damage caused. He is also prohibited from making contact with the victim for nine years, after serving his sentence.

The court considered the violation proven, as the victim did not consent and there are additional elements that support the accusation. The court identified three elements that prove the violation – injuries to the victim's knee, behavior when reporting what happened and the presence of after-effects. The former Brazilian national team player's legal team has the possibility of appealing the decision in two instances in Spain: at the Superior Court of Justice of Catalonia (TSJC) and at the Supreme Court of Spain. While Daniel Alves remains in prison, his lawyer stated that he will appeal.
