The Valencia Court has confirmed the sentence of one year and three months in prison to a man for a crime of family abuse and another of threats against the woman for injuring her then-partner in 2019.
In addition, the ruling prohibits him from communicating or approaching less than 200 meters from the victim -whom he must compensate with 150 euros- for two years, a period in which he will not be able to have weapons. You will also have to pay the costs of the trial.
The defendant appealed the sentence of the Criminal Court number 8 considering that his right to the presumption of innocence had been violated during the oral hearing.
The account of proven facts indicates that the convicted person, born in Italy and with no criminal record, followed the victim, after having had a discussion at home, to the point where he had gathered for the Women's Day demonstration.
The defendant went to her to continue the brawl and grabbed her forearm strongly, causing a bruise that took five days to heal. That same March 8, she sent an audio to her partner's cell phone threatening her with death: “You have made the worst mistake of your life. I kill you".
Given the complaint filed, the Court of Violence against Women number 4 of Valencia took similar measures to those adopted in the sentence -a restraining order of 300 meters- and that will remain in force until the ruling is final, since there is still an appeal before the Supreme Court.
