Neymar faces up to 5 years in prison for distributing sexual images

PSG star Neymar faces up to five years amid rape, AS reports.

In Brazil it is a crime to offer, share, transmit, sell, distribute or publish images or videos of sexual content by any means without the consent of the subject of the video, with the crime carrying a penalty of up to five years in prison.

The possibility of a longer sentence can occur in the case of a violation being deemed an act of revenge after a sexual relationship – or so-called ‘revenge porn’.

Neymar and his father denied the accusations. According to the football player, sex was by mutual consent. The incident occurred on May 15 in Paris.
