The Cantabria Prosecutor’s Office is seeking an eight and a half year prison sentence for a man accused of sexually assaulting a young woman while she was asleep and under the influence of alcohol. The prosecutor also wants the accused to compensate the victim with 8,000 euros for the anxiety-depressive disorder and mild post-traumatic stress disorder she has suffered.
The trial is set to begin on January 30 at the Third Section of the Provincial Court of Cantabria. According to the prosecution, the accused met the young woman and her friends at a party, and later took advantage of her intoxicated state to sexually assault her while she was asleep on a sofa.
The prosecution is seeking a sentence of eight and a half years in prison, a nine-year prohibition from approaching or communicating with the victim, a fourteen-year disqualification from working with minors, and a security measure after the prison sentence. They are also requesting the accused be expelled from the country after serving two-thirds of the sentence, with a seven-year ban on re-entry.
The private accusation, brought by the young woman’s family, is seeking a nine-year prison sentence and 20,000 euros in compensation for the disorder suffered and its consequences.
The young woman woke up when she heard her friend’s screams and was able to push the accused away from her. The prosecution alleges that the accused’s actions constitute a crime of sexual assault with carnal access.
The family of the young woman is also seeking the same sentence and prohibitions as the prosecution, as well as expulsion from the country after serving two-thirds of the sentence, with a seven-year ban on re-entry.
The trial is set to take place at the Salesas judicial complex in Santander, Spain. The accused is in an irregular situation in Spain, and the prosecution is seeking his expulsion from the country after serving two-thirds of the sentence.
The young woman’s family is also seeking 20,000 euros in compensation for the disorder suffered and its consequences. The trial is expected to be a significant event in the region, and the outcome will be closely watched by the public.
