Danny Alves appealed for the prison sentence for temporary release

He was sentenced to 4.5 years in prison for raping a young girl in a Barcelona club, but his lawyers appealed to reduce his sentence. Spanish media say Danny Alves is also in greater danger than the prosecutor, but the Brazilian himself now hopes that with the appeal he will be able to stay free earlier, claiming again that sex with the girl was consensual. In this context, the legal team of former Barcelona player and legend of Brazilian football also called for his temporary release, until the appeal was heard, but which is considered to be impossible to accept, since there are fears of his flight to Brazil.
