Former Brazil and Barcelona player Dani Alves has been sentenced to four years and six months in prison for sexual assault by a Spanish court.

The 40-year-old former right-back was found guilty of assaulting a woman in a Barcelona nightclub on New Year’s Eve in 2022 and has been in custody since being arrested for the offense in January 2023.

In addition to the prison sentence, Alves has been ordered to pay his victim 150,000 euros (£128,000) in compensation and cover their court costs.

The court’s decision also grants Alves the right to appeal against his sentence.

A statement from the Audiencia de Barcelona on Thursday confirmed the verdict, stating, “The Court of Barcelona has condemned footballer Dani Alves to four years and six months in prison for sexual assault.

The victim must also receive 150,000 euros and have their legal costs paid.

The sentence takes into consideration that it has been proven the victim did not consent and that there is evidence in addition to their testimony that proves the offense.”

This sentencing marks a significant development in the case, highlighting the court’s commitment to addressing sexual assault and ensuring justice for the victim.

It also serves as a reminder that no individual, regardless of their status or achievements, is above the law.

Dani Alves now has the opportunity to appeal the decision, and the legal process will continue to unfold as the case progresses.
