The prison where Alves is being held has intro­duced a spe­cial pro­to­col because the admin­is­tra­tion is con­cerned about his con­di­tion.

The court found for­mer Barcelona and Brazil defend­er Dani Alves guilty of rape. The foot­ball play­er was sen­tenced to 4.5 years in prison.

What did Dani Alves do?

Charges were brought against Alves in Jan­u­ary 2023. The 23-year-old said she met the foot­baller at the Sut­ton night­club dur­ing the Christ­mas hol­i­days in Barcelona. Lat­er, accord­ing to the vic­tim, whose name was not dis­closed, the play­er began to harass her. The girl said that Alves ignored her refusal and raped her.

On Jan­u­ary 20, 2023, Dani was arrest­ed by court order and was denied bail. He denied the vic­tim’s alle­ga­tions and claimed that he had con­sen­su­al sex with the girl.

As a result, the con­sid­er­a­tion of the case was delayed. The defense tried to chal­lenge the accu­sa­tions against the foot­ball play­er, but in their speech­es the lawyers report­ed con­flict­ing infor­ma­tion, which sig­nif­i­cant­ly aggra­vat­ed Alves’ sit­u­a­tion.

Ini­tial­ly, pros­e­cu­tors demand­ed a 12-year prison sen­tence for the sus­pect and com­pen­sa­tion to the vic­tim in the amount of 150 thou­sand euros. How­ev­er, the court made a dif­fer­ent deci­sion: now one of the most titled foot­ball play­ers in the world will have to spend 4 years and 6 months in prison.

The max­i­mum pos­si­ble sen­tence for such a crime is 15 years, while in accor­dance with the law on sex­u­al con­sent, which was adopt­ed in Spain in 2023, lia­bil­i­ty is pro­vid­ed for a wide range of offens­es — from insults on the Inter­net to rape itself.

As part of the Span­ish club, Alves became a six-time cham­pi­on of Spain, and also won the Span­ish Cup and Super Cup four times and the Cham­pi­ons League three times. In his career, he man­aged to play for such teams as Sevil­la, Juven­tus, Paris Saint-Ger­main and the Brazil­ian Bahia and Sao Paulo.

The pub­li­ca­tion RMC Sport, cit­ing sources in the prison where Alves was kept all these months, report­ed that the foot­ball play­er was in a depressed emo­tion­al state. It is alleged that because of this, the man­age­ment of the insti­tu­tion was even forced to intro­duce an “anti-sui­cide plan”. This infor­ma­tion was con­firmed in the Fies­ta tele­vi­sion pro­gram, which pub­lished an excerpt from a con­ver­sa­tion with Dani’s for­mer cell­mate. The pris­on­er said that because of the tri­al, the ath­lete fell into depres­sion and the admin­is­tra­tion was forced to “take extreme mea­sures.”
