GhenGhen: Brazil Star, Robinho Reportedly Sent to 9 Years in Prison For Sexual Assault [Full details]

Former Brazilian international, Robinho has been sentenced to nine years in prison by an Italian court after he was found guilty of sexually assaulting a 22-year-old woman at a night club in Milan in January 2013, The Sun UK claims.

He was playing for AC Milan at the time. He was found guilty along with five other men.

The former Manchester City forward is currently playing for Atletico Mineiro in Brazil.

Robinho played for Milan between 2010 and 2015. He is currently with Atletico Mineiro and made his last appearance for the national team against Colombia in January.

As Robinho is a Brazilian national currently residing in his home country, however, he is highly unlikely to face jail time for his offences.

According to local legislation no Brazilian citizen can be extradited to another country under request to face criminal charges, although that will not apply should he leave his home nation and is detained elsewhere.
