MADRID (AP) — Three former players of a fourth-division soccer club in Spain were convicted Thursday of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old girl.
Former Arandina players Carlos Cuadrado, Víctor Rodríguez and Raúl Calvo were sentenced to 38 years in prison. It wasn’t clear if the players — who denied wrongdoing — would appeal the ruling.
The three were found guilty of assaulting the girl at a rented apartment in 2017. They said they did not have sexual relations with the girl and did not know she was 15 at the time.
