The Cantabria Prosecutor’s Office requests eight and a half years in prison for a man for sexually assaulting a young woman while she was asleep and affected by having drunk alcohol. The public prosecutor’s office considers that the accused is the author of a crime of sexual assault with carnal access and also requests that he compensate the victim with 8,000 euros for the anxiety-depressive disorder that he has suffered and the mild post-traumatic stress disorder that he has been left with. Likewise, given that the accused is in an irregular situation in Spain, he requests that, once two-thirds of the sentence has been served, he be expelled from the country, with a prohibition on re-entering for seven years. The private accusation, brought by the young woman’s family, raises their request for a sentence of nine years in prison and 20,000 euros. The trial will take place starting this Tuesday, January 30, in the Third Section of the Provincial Court of Cantabria starting at 10:00 a.m. According to the prosecution’s statement, the accused met the young woman and her friends when they were partying. Around three in the morning, they all went to a third person’s house and there the young woman, who had consumed a lot of alcohol, fell asleep on the living room sofa. The accused, “with the intention of undermining her sexual integrity, taking advantage of the fact that she was asleep and affected by the previous intake of alcohol, pulled down her pants and underwear and penetrated her vaginally.” The young woman woke up when she heard the screams of her friend, who had realized what was happening. Then, he hit him and pushed him until he was able to get him away from her. The prosecution considers the accused as the author of a crime of sexual assault with carnal access, deserving of a sentence of eight and a half years in prison, prohibition from approaching and communicating with the young woman for nine years, disqualification from performance that involves contact with minors for fourteen years and security measure after the prison sentence. It also calls for his expulsion from the country when he has served two-thirds of the sentence, with a ban on re-entry for seven years. As a matter of civil liability, request that you compensate the young woman with 8,000 euros. For its part, the young woman’s family is requesting a sentence of nine years in prison, the same as the removal and prohibition of communication, and fourteen years of disqualification from working with minors. Also of interest is expulsion after two-thirds of the sentence has been served, with a prohibition on re-entry for seven years. As compensation, he requests 20,000 euros for the disorder suffered and the resulting consequences.
