“I condemn the defendant Paulo Leandro Fernandes Soares for the crimes of rape and false imprisonment, with a sentence of 9 years, 7 months and 6 days of imprisonment and 24 days fine, in an initial closed regime. The defendant will be able to appeal in freedom”, said Gottino, live on the program, as he read an excerpt from the decision of the judge responsible for the case.
