Two years in prison for assaulting Angel Cabrera – .


BUENOS AIRES (AP) – Argentinian golfer Ángel Cabrera, former Masters and US Open champion, was sentenced to two years in prison on Wednesday for assaulting his former partner.
A court in Cordoba province, about 800 kilometers northwest of Buenos Aires, convicted the 51-year-old for assaulting, threatening and harassing Cecilia Torres Mana, his partner between 2016 and 2018.

Cabrera, who denied any wrongdoing at trial, will serve his sentence immediately.

“His situation is much more complex than that, he has other charges for which there are also arrest warrants. There are other victims, ”prosecutor Laura Battistelli told Todo Noticias television.

The first charges were brought by Torres Mana, and two other women subsequently followed suit.

The golfer traveled to the United States in July 2020 without requesting permission, which led the province of Cordoba to request his arrest.

Cabrera was arrested by Interpol agents in Rio de Janeiro in January. Last month he was extradited from Brazil to his homeland so he could stand trial.

He won the US Open at Oakmont in 2007, beating Tiger Woods and Jim Furyk in one fell swoop. He also triumphed in a Masters playoff in 2009 and lost a playoff in the same event in 2013 against Adam Scott.
