Family abuser in court

The Prosecutor’s Office requests 15 years in prison for a man who will be tried this Wednesday in the fifth section of the Provincial Court of Pontevedra, based in Vigo, accused of allegedly abusing a minor relative.

The public ministry also requests that the accused be prohibited from approaching the victim, her home or place she frequents, and from communicating with her by any means for a period of 25 years.

The events occurred in 2019, at which time the accused was living with the minor, with whom he has a family relationship. In addition to the prison sentence and the removal, the Prosecutor’s Office also demands that the victim be compensated in 8,000 euro.
