The prosecutor has maintained his request for five years in prison for Carlos Fernández-Roca for a crime of sexual abuse committed in the night of November 7 to 8, 2020 at his home in Madrid and also compensate the victim, who was then 23 years old, in 5,000 euros.

The lawyer of the accusation brought by the young woman has estimated that it has been shown that the accused took advantage of the drunken situation of the woman to go home after drinking to consummate the sexual abuse.

She only consented to kisses because he liked her, and he knew that she was very Catholic and that loss of virginity was reserved for marriagebut, despite that and that he asked her to stop, he told her to relax and consummated the non-consensual vaginal penetration “.

The defense attorney has requested his absolution and has explained that no one can believe that a person who says he was raped falls asleep after the sexual act and sends, when he left the accused’s house, whatsapp messages a friend and four other people without mentioning the alleged sexual assault.
